RAAC within East Sussex schools and other buildings

escc logoThe council, alongside the DfE, have carried out an assessment of council maintained schools constructed or extended between the 1930s and 1990s to investigate for the presence of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) within the buildings.

To date, we have not identified any location where RAAC has been utilised in the construction. Therefore, no East Sussex County Council maintained schools are currently closed due to this issue. The only school currently affected by RAAC in East Sussex is not a council maintained school and any queries should therefore be directed to that Academy Trust.

As a further precaution, the council will now undertake a similar assessment of its other properties.
