Advice on Standards for School Premises 2013

Department of Education (DfE)

Publication date: 2013
Ranking: essential

This advice is non-statutory, and has been produced by the DfE to help recipients understand their obligations and duties in relation to the School Premises Regulations 2012, which came into force on 31 October 2012, and Part 5 of the revised Education (Independent School Standards) (England) Regulations 20101, which came into force on 1 January 2013.

The advice contains fewer regulations than previously and they are less prescriptive. Signposts to other relevant legislation is provided. Many of the regulations simply state that provision must be ‘suitable’.

It is proposed by the DfE that they will review the guidance in May, 2014 .
