star this property answer text <p>The Department takes the safety of pupils, staff and visitors to schools very seriously. The decision to remove asbestos from schools is made on a case by case basis.</p><p> </p><p>Advice from the Health and Safety Executive is that if asbestos is unlikely to be damaged or disturbed, then it is best managed in situ. The Department is also clear that when asbestos cannot be managed effectively in situ, it should be removed.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2015, the Department has allocated £6 billion to those responsible for school buildings, for essential maintenance and improvements, including removing or encapsulating asbestos when it is the safest course of action to do so.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, our Priority School Building Programme is rebuilding or refurbishing buildings in the worst condition in over 500 schools across the country. Asbestos was a factor in selecting buildings for the programme.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
