Experts at acting fast to help you

The DfE will only consider applications where the schools cannot fund the works independently, through RPA or insurance. UCS applications will need to provide evidence of:

  • Significant health and safety risk in relation to the identified issue
  • The condition issue representing, or resulting in a threat of school closure
  • The condition issue resulting in or risking imminent closure of a significant part of the school
  • The inability for works to be funded elsewhere
