Synopsis

What comparing 20 existing SEND schools with the guidance in BB104 tells us about the UK’s SEND School Buildings Estate

Speaker: Laura Jones, Architect & Client Adviser, L J A

In 2021, LJA were commissioned to assess the spatial capacity of 20 broad ranging SEND school buildings. To understand the school’s spatial capacity, we developed an assessment methodology which utilised the various formula available in Building Bulletin 104 using 4 types of area assessment. The methodology specifically attempted to reconcile the impact of the specific needs of each school’s current pupil population with the spatial areas that they require. This presentation will discuss the methodology and the trends that emerged in the data collected to give an indicative reflection of the SEND school building estate.
