In the latest survey of over 8,000 National Education Union members, conducted ahead of Annual Conference in Bournemouth, we asked teachers and support staff about the state of their school/college/nursery buildings.

  • Two thirds of teachers (68%) work in buildings which have leaks from the rain. For one in ten (10%) this is a “severe” issue.
  • Young people are being taught in severely overheated conditions, according to a third of teacher respondents (33%). For one in six (16%), their workplace generates severely cold working conditions.
  • 57% of teachers tell us that issues with facilities negatively impact the learning environment for their students. 

The State of Education survey gauges the views of working teacher, support staff and school leader NEU members in England and Wales. We are releasing the findings over the course of Annual Conference.
