Asbestos in schools

05 February 2016

In March 2015, the DfE concluded a review of its policy on the management of asbestos in schools. The outcomes from the review included the issuing of updated guidance, Managing Asbestos in Your School, and a call for a clearer picture of how asbestos is managed in schools across England.

As a result, and during February 2016, the DfE conducted an online questionnaire where headteachers obtained immediate feedback and advice based on their responses.

The DfE has advised they will publish the responses later in the year.
