RAAC: all schools in Wales now open to all pupils

The Welsh Government has announced that all schools in Wales are now open for all pupils.

There were only five schools in Wales that were found to have RAAC, compared to 231 in England and 39 in Scotland.

These five schools have now reopened to all pupils.

The Minister for Education and Welsh Language, Jeremy Miles said: "Over the past nine years, we have introduced an extensive programme for the refurbishment and building of new schools and colleges, upgrading and replacing those which are most in need of replacement for safety and quality reasons.

"The fact that so few cases of RAAC have been identified in our schools, only five in Wales in comparison to over 270 elsewhere in the UK, is testament to this Welsh Government's investment in our learning centres."
