Asbestos data collection in schools

Short questionnaire to gather data on asbestos in schools.



In March 2015, the Department for Education completed a major review of its policy on the management of asbestos in schools.

The outcomes from the review included a call for a clearer picture of how asbestos is managed in schools across England; and the issuing of updated guidance.

  • We developed an asbestos management data collection to provide a clearer picture of how asbestos is being managed in schools.

  • Head teachers completing the data collection also received immediate feedback and advice based on their responses.

  • We have published the data collection findings.

  • We have also published updated guidance on managing asbestos in schools.
