The Education (Independent School Standards) (England) Regulations 2010, which apply to all academies, including free schools, require that classrooms are appropriate in size to allow effective teaching and that no area of the school compromises the health and safety of pupils. In making this assessment, regard must be had to their number, age and needs (including any special educational needs and disabilities).
The department provides guidelines on spaces in schools, contained within Building Bulletin 98 (secondary schools) and Building Bulletin 99 (primary schools). These bulletins are for guidance only and are not statutory requirements. Both of these bulletins are under review and will be revised later this year.
