Three schools across south east London has identified reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC), as of February 8, 2024.

The Department for Education (DfE) previously published details on how it will permanently RAAC from affected schools and colleges across the country.

It comes after a school leaders’ union called on the Government to provide more financial support to schools facing ongoing issues as a result of Raac.

Below are the three south east London schools where RAAC has been identified

1. Bexley: Cleeve Park School (secondary)

2. Greenwich: St Thomas More Catholic Comprehensive School (secondary)

3. Lewisham: Myatt Garden (primary)

Cleve Park Secondary School in Bexley and Myatt Garden Primary in Lewisham has a grant for removing the concrete, whilst St Thomas More Catholic Comprehensive Secondary School will have one or more blocks rebuilt or refurbished as part of the School Rebuilding Programme.

A total of 234 education settings in England have been identified as having Raac in some areas of their buildings, which is a slight rise on 231 on November 27.

The DfE has said that 119 of these schools will have one or more buildings rebuilt or refurbished through the Government’s School Rebuilding Programme as works to remove Raac are more extensive or complex.

A further 110 schools and colleges – where works will typically be smaller in scale – will receive a grant to help them remove Raac from their buildings.

Five schools and colleges have alternative arrangements in place to address the removal of Raac, the DfE said.

Education Secretary Gillian Keegan said: “Nothing is more important to me than the safety of every child and member of staff in school.

“We will continue to work closely with schools and colleges as we take the next step to permanently remove Raac from affected buildings.”
