The current accommodation, built in 1921 of prefabricated asbestos and extended with mobile classrooms, houses over 250 pupils. A full condition survey of the building recommended spending no more money on it because it was past saving. The school leaks, has rusting windows, rotting timbers and suffers with blocked drains. Playground and Play Equipment As with the building, so with outside space and equipment: there was a wide range of ratings. Over half the schools rated their playgrounds as good, with under a fifth rating them as poor.

Similarly, where schools had staff with first-aid training more reported satisfaction: 47 per cent compared with 34 per cent of those with no qualified member of staff. Thus where schools had taken action, they were likely to be satisfied with the lay health-care system they offered. 10 also shows that there was a clear relationship between satisfaction and having a first-aid room. It would seem that having a designated, readily available room (whether sole use or shared with the school health service) was regarded as important for good care.

Altogether, in 44 per cent of all schools at least one member of staff had attended a short first-aid course. In 31 per cent of schools at least one member of staff had long first-aid training. In 8 per cent of schools a member of staff had some type of ‘medical’ or nursing training.
