This publication is a landmark in improving fire safety in schools. It brings together guidance on how to make schools safer places for children to be in, with guidance on how to protect the continuity of their education. This document is both a design tool and a management aid. It shows clearly how the requirements for life safety, enshrined in the Building Regulations, can be met in the design of a new school or an extension. Innovative design may need to employ fire safety engineering, a riskbased approach, and this guide explains what design teams should do.
