Teachers and parents: what’s the condition of your school buildings?

A recent audit of the condition of schools buildings in England found that the repair bill had risen to more than £11bn, which represented a significant increase on an estimate from 2017. We want to find out more about the state of school buildings to investigate whether this is becoming a day-to-day issue for pupils and teachers, and how the extra pressures of the pandemic may have had an impact.

We are interested in all aspects of the state of the nation’s classrooms, but past issues have included the long-term use of “temporary” cabins, the removal of asbestos, lighting, leaks and IT repairs, as well as boilers and air conditioning.
