RAAC funding for schools and colleges in England

Blog posted by: Rhian Binns, PR and Communications Manager – Education, 13 February 2024.

It has recently been announced that schools and colleges in England will receive funding to permanently remove reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC).

In 2022, the DfE sent out a questionnaire as part of the Department’s RAAC Identification programme, asking schools to provide information about the use of RAAC in schools across the country.

With over 22,000 schools and colleges in England, results showed that 234 education settings have confirmed RAAC. You can view the final list here, along with information on how they will be funded.

Grant funding will be available to schools and colleges where RAAC removal will be on a smaller scale. Work to remove RAAC that is more extensive or complex will be funded by the School Rebuilding Programme.
