A toolkit to help teachers make the most of the learning opportunities created by building a new school or refurbishing an existing one.

The quality of the buildings and spaces where we live and learn has a profound impact on all our lives. Understanding how they get built, and knowing that local people can influence the process, gives pupils the skills and confidence to play a bigger, more positive role in their communities for the rest of their lives.

Our school building matters is written and published by CABE with the support of the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT). It has also been endorsed by National Primary Headteachers (NPH).
