Managing a school is a huge undertaking. Head teachers have to balance budgets, manage staff and plan ahead to make sure there’s enough room for everyone. School numbers can change rapidly. A sudden uptake or surge in the number of pupils can cause headaches. After all there are only so many classrooms and it’s not like an extension can be built overnight. Anyway, some sort of permanent extension might look ill advised a few years later when numbers drop again. It’s a real challenge to cater for this ebb and flow of pupils.
Modular buildings are the perfect solution. These low cost, affordable units can be put together on site in just a matter of weeks. Disruption is kept to a minimum and once completed these buildings provide quality classroom space for teachers and pupils alike. The extra space helps to ease the situation for everybody.
Education budgets are never generous to begin with. Head teachers and local authorities have to find smart and affordable ways to house all of the pupils attending their schools. Education matters. These formative years are hugely important. A modular building might only be a temporary solution, but it offers a quality environment for learning and development.
The natural rhythms of population ebb and flow. People move in and out of different areas. This all presents schools with a host of challenges. No one has a crystal ball. A sudden change in pupil numbers cannot be ignored. Overcrowding in classrooms does no one any good. A fast and flexible response in required to ease the situation. A response that doesn’t compromise the quality of educational environment that pupils experience.
Temporary buildings are the perfect stop gap. This is a unique challenge to modern schools and this is by far the best solution in terms of cost, effectiveness and flexibility.
