Following the introduction of academies, schools have needed to rely far more on their own resources and staff to manage their estates and property. For many, particularly small rural schools, this has brought significant challenges made worse by the significant lack of knowledge and practical advice about how to approach both basic property related tasks, as well as some of the more technically challenging tasks schools have never before been responsible for. 

Volume one of the Property Support for Schools Information Notes provides both practical and affordable advice in an easy to use format for anyone struggling to understand how to approach some of the fundamentals of managing a school estate.   


This series offers school business professionals and those with estates and premises responsibilities 12 practical documents that drill down into the critical information needed in a number of business areas ranging from health and safety to commissioning consultants and devising an asset management plan for your school. The series includes:
• Writing asset management plans and maintenance plans
• Dealing with asbestos
• Managing repairs
• Dealing with fire and water safety
• Submitting a business case to capital funds

The notes will be of use to anyone who is responsible for property either directly or indirectly including property managers, head teachers, school business leaders and school governors.
