Schools get clean bill of health

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

All of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang’s school build­ings have been given a clean bill of health.

In­spec­tors were spot­ted at Cathkin High on Fri­day in the wake of the Ed­in­burgh school clo­sures.

De­fects were found at schools in the cap­i­tal that had been built us­ing pri­vate pub­lic part­ner­ships (PPP).

The same method was used to fund the re­builds of Stonelaw, Trin­ity, Cathkin and Ruther­glen high schools.

Last week we re­ported that coun­cils were wait­ing on ad­vice from the Scot­tish Govern­ment on what steps to take.

Although it was only sec­ondary schools built us­ing PPP in South La­nark­shire, a coun­cil spokesper­son con­firmed this week all schools, in­clud­ing pri­maries, had been checked. They added: “We have made the nec­es­sary checks as re­quested by the Scot­tish Govern­ment and there are no safety is­sues with our school build­ings.

“All schools were open as planned on Mon­day, April 18.

“None of our sec­ondary schools built un­der the PPP pro­gramme in­volved Miller Con­struc­tion.”

No prob­lem In­spec­tors were spot­ted at Cathkin last week, but no prob­lems were found
