The Department takes the safety of pupils, staff and visitors to schools very seriously. To improve our understanding of the management of asbestos in schools, the Department launched the Asbestos Management Assurance Process (AMAP) in March 2018. This will enable the Department to develop an even better understanding of how asbestos is being managed in schools, strengthen the Department’s published guidance and support the Department’s work with the Health and Safety Executive to follow up with any schools of concern.

The Department intends to publish the report on the findings of the AMAP this month. The Department also intends to publish the names of the participating Responsible Bodies, schools and academies.
