Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC)

Dear Parents & Carers,


You may have seen recent media coverage regarding Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) and its use in educational settings.  RAAC is a lightweight form of concrete; because it is weaker than regular concrete, concerns have been raised about its long-term durability.  The Department for Education (DfE) has recently changed its guidance to education settings on the management of RAAC to take a more precautionary approach and as a result areas in affected spaces will be vacated.


I wanted to inform you that we are not affected by this decision as we do not have any RAAC in our school building and therefore we will continue to function as normal. 


I hope that this offers you all reassurance.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs Tippen
