Dear Parents and Carers
You may be aware from media coverage that the government has asked some schools to close or partially close due to the presence of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) in their school buildings. We understand that this is an unsettling news story and that it may naturally have led you to wonder about the safety of school buildings in the Midsomer Norton Schools’ Partnership Trust (MNSP).
To be clear, we have been aware of the issues with this building material for some time and have had all school buildings (likely to be at risk) surveyed. The conclusion has been that in our school buildings there is no evidence of RAAC and therefore, deemed safe to open as normal. We will continue to monitor all our buildings to ensure that they remain structurally sound.
I hope that this provides reassurance and we look forward to welcoming your child back to school next week.
Mr A Williams
