Concrete schools: more than 100 schools scrambling to find temporary classrooms


It’s just days before the new academic year begins – but more than 100 schools across England are scrambling to find temporary new classrooms after potentially dangerous concrete was discovered. And, the Government has admitted more schools might be affected too, as engineers spend the weekend checking premises around the country.

Unions are furious that schools are only being told about the safety issue now – calling it a “sign of gross incompetence”.
