To ask the Scottish Government how many pupils are currently learning in a school that requires major rebuilding or refurbishment, broken down by local authority.


The Scottish Government does not hold information on major rebuilding or refurbishment requirements. It is the statutory responsibility of local authorities to manage and maintain their school estate.

Since 2007 the quality of the school estate has improved from 61% to over 90% of schools reported in good or satisfactory condition.
