Schools get clean bill of health
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
