Dear Mr Bradshaw MP
Please see the following email from Chudleigh schools, who confirm they do
not hold any as built Health & Safety files at the school.
It is a legal requirement to hold such files on the premises
Strikes me the Devon County Council don't know what they are doing

Dear Mr. Dransfield,
In response to your request, I am now able to advise that we are a Devon County Council maintained school and our
on- going maintenance is undertaken via NPS. We do not hold ‘As Built Health & Safety files’ as these are held by whoever commissioned the building. In our case this would be DCC. I note that DCC have referred you to apply directly to us but I wonder if there might have been a misunderstanding with a school with a similar name which is an academy school? Therefore DCC would have referred you direct them.
