To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what information his Department collects on the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method ratings of schools completed under the Building Schools for the Future programme. (252665)

Schools within Building Schools for the Future are not separately identified within this data. At November 2008, 1,085 schools had registered for a BREEAM assessment and 28 had received a certified rating. Of the schools which received a rating, 17 have achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘very good’ and four have achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘excellent’.
