Cambridgeshire Schools Property Maintenance Guide
The purpose of the Schools Maintenance guide is to assist Headteachers and Governors of maintained schools in Cambridgeshire to maintain their school premises – both buildings and land.
Good stewardship and maintenance of school premises is a joint responsibility shared by the school and the County Council. The Council owns the property assets and employs school personnel but delegates budgets and responsibilities for school property management and maintenance.
It is important that schools manage and maintain their buildings to a standard that complies with legal requirements, best practice as well as to the Council’s own standards. This guide will help to make you aware of these requirements and how you can ensure that your buildings are appropriately managed. It is not a manual but should be read in conjunction with the documents named and with appropriate professional advice where applicable.
