Parents in West Norfolk worried about the possibility of RAAC concrete at their children’s school should talk to the school if they have concerns.
Sites around the country have been forced to close classrooms and buildings due to concerns about the presence of the material and its long term safety.
In a statement, Norfolk County Council said the Thomas Bullock Academy in Shipdham, near Dereham, is the only confirmed site with RAAC in the school hall delaying the start of term.
Penny Carpenter, the county councillor responsible for children’s services, said: “We are awaiting further results from a number of other academy schools and the schools will inform parents and staff if any issues are found. We are, as always, ready to assist.
She said work has been going on for some time to identify the presence of the type of concrete. “We were made aware of this issue in 2018 and proactively worked with all of the county council’s maintained schools to identify if RAAC was present and if there were any problems. Structural engineers from NPS carried out surveys of 83 buildings and found no concerns.
“As you would expect, we are keeping up to date with the changes and updates in DFE guidance and other information on RAAC as it comes through, in case any additional assessment is required to ensure the health and safety of pupils.”
