Almost a third of Scottish schools are in a poor condition, a survey has revealed.
The study of the school estate examined the size, condition, value, running costs and capacity of the premises.
In all, it looked at 2,184 primary schools, 383 secondaries and 163 special schools.
A total of £97m was spent on repairs, alterations and maintenance in 2005-06. Work done by public private partnership schemes amounted to a further £95m.
The survey, for the Scottish Executive, found that overall 31% of schools were classed as being in a poor condition, with 5% rated as bad. (More at link)
