Parents were not advised of repairs after a wall collapsed at Duncanrig Secondary, according to information uncovered by a recent freedom of information request.
South Lanarkshire Council admitted that defects in Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme schools were known four years ago, but insists that the secondary school pupils attending East Kilbride are not in danger.
The request revealed that repairs were performed in Duncanrig Secondary after stormy weather caused a wall to collapse during the 2012 Christmas break.
However, the council neglected at the time to inform local parents that faulty wall ties had to be repaired after structural engineers investigated.
Further investigations in other South Lanarkshire schools took place, with St Andrew’s and St. Bride’s requiring the replacement of five faulty wall ties in total.
The same problems have since been unearthed during the Edinburgh schools scandal, during which buildings were closed down after a wall at Oxgangs Primary fell, creating fears over safety at PPP buildings across Edinburgh.
