The overall purpose of Gold Command meetings is to set the strategic direction and make key decisions relating to the Government’s response to RAAC in schools and colleges. This may include discussion on the mitigation plans for individual schools and colleges with confirmed RAAC.

St Leonard’s Catholic School has an assigned project director working alongside the trust and school leadership team, providing support and direction to ensure all children returned to face to face education as quickly as possible. This was achieved on 30 October 2023. Additionally, a working group of officials, school leadership and trust personnel meet regularly to continue to mitigate the effect of RAAC for pupils and staff.
