The County Council has 284 school sites making up 29% of the total WSCC estate. Current funding available in the Capital Programme for schools is for Basic Need (increasing school places) and Capital Maintenance (condition issues) only. The latter also needs to be used if there is a need for works to address safeguarding concerns.
Following recent work on managing the safety of staff and pupils during a potential incident, and as a result of individual school risk assessments, a number of schools have been identified as needing funding to make improvements for ensuring the safeguarding of children.
This report provides information on the schools that require capital funding support to minimise risks to pupils and staff.
