School premises - a best practice guide

School building website new.jpg

With the summer break not far away and being a time when many schools literally get their 'house in order', it is perhaps a good time to remind school leaders and School Business Managers of the statutory and practice framework for school premises.

Our guidance covers toilet, washroom and medical facilities, acoustics and lighting provision, water supply and space utilisation.

Boarding Schools' premises are also covered by our guidance.
