A Sussex school has reopened after initial concerns over unsafe concrete.

Greenway Junior School in Horsham was closed for all pupils yesterday over concerns over potentially hazardous reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC).

Survey work was carried out to check the building for concrete, with preparations made in case classroom furniture needed to be moved.

Pupils have now been welcomed back to the school, but a spokesman for GLF Schools Academy Trust, which manages the school, said there is “still an area that cannot yet be confirmed as being free of RAAC”.

Further survey work at the school is being carried out today.

It comes as shadow education secretary Bridget Phillipson said Gillian Keegan, education secretary and MP for Chichester, has “serious questions to answer” after it emerged a company the senior Conservative’s husband has links to was handed a £1 million IT contract from a fund earmarked for rebuilding schools.

According to the Daily Mirror, Michael Keegan states on his LinkedIn social media profile that he is a non-executive director at technology firm Centerprise.

The company was one of six suppliers awarded contracts earlier this year to replace server infrastructure with the money coming from the Department for Education’s school rebuilding programme fund.

Ms Phillipson said: “This appears to be a gross conflict of interest and eyebrows will be raised that the Keegans appear to have gained from a shrinking pot of school rebuilding money.”

There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing by Mr and Mrs Keegan.

A spokeswoman for the Department for Education said: “Ministers had no involvement in the procurement process for these contracts, which were awarded in line with existing government commercial procedure.”

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will face Labour leader Keir Starmer at Prime Minister’s Questions for the first time in seven weeks in a session likely to be dominated by the RAAC crisis.

The Prime Minister’s actions as Chancellor have already been questioned after one of his ministers suggested Mr Sunak approved funding for 50 schools a year to be rebuilt, rejecting an application for cash for 200 a year.
