The Department for Education (DfE) will be at least £2 million out of pocket after a company that later failed built schools that were forced to close because of safety issues.

Caledonian Modular fell into administration in April 2022. It emerged last month that three schools it built had to close because they could not withstand “very high winds or significant snowfall”.

Some were forced to delay the start of term until temporary classrooms were found.

Another two part-built schools had to be demolished this spring after “defects” were found.
