The feedback we have had from those who have used it has been excellent and it is great to know that it is helping schools address this issue which all in the education sector recognise as being of critical importance. We realise that our guide is only one important tool that should form part of a thorough, robust and considered approach to building and premises compliance. Keen to build on this tool, we aim to support schools to remain compliant and safe with a compliance audit service.

CIPFA Property recognises that school business professionals don't always have the background or expertise to help support their organisations as well as they need to when it comes to looking after school property. That's why we have devised a series of information notes which tackle the most important and critical areas you need to get to grips with if you want to ensure compliance, value for money and efficiency.
