A TOTAL of 70 schools across Essex with weak concrete at risk of collapse will have buildings rebuilt or refurbished, the government has announced reports the BBC.
Schools were thrown into chaos after concerns were raised about reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (Raac) at the start of the academic year.
Essex was branded the worst affected county in the country amid the crisis.
A final list of schools and colleges in England with confirmed cases of Raac was published on Thursday.
The list incudes: Harlowbury Primary School, Katherines Primary, Jerounds Primary and Water Lane Primary.

Did the Tories say when the schools will be rebuilt? Did they say whether it would be new money or whether it would it be coming from existing education budgets meaning cuts in funding for schools? Perhaps Robert Halfon, an Education Minister, could give us some answers? Or is he still AWOL after his disappearing act from the SFG debacle?
Waterlane only had a little bit and it has been removed and replaced. The children go back to the reception and year 1 classrooms after February half term.
