[2021] Motion 61 The state of school buildings

carried motion
Carried motion

Received from:

Congress notes, with sorrow, the dilapidated state of disrepair of our schools and colleges, many of which are well beyond their intended use date. It is vital for the education of the next generation and for the health and welfare of members who work in the profession that every building is fit for purpose.

Congress calls on the government to commit to the estimated costs of bringing the school estate up to an acceptable standard as a bare minimum.

Furthermore, in light of our new understanding about the importance of ventilation in slowing the spread of Covid-19, Congress presses the government to carry out an urgent review of ventilation in all schools, proving financial support for those that require immediate work to bring this up to an acceptable standard.
