    Dear Stephen
    Is there anything which limits the number of children that can be educated in one class in a specific room in a school?
    I'm not asking about the KS1 class size legislation of 30 per teacher (with some exceptions) as I'm well versed in that.
    I'm asking about whether a room in a school can be too small for a particular number of children, and if there is anything which determines this? e.g. fire regulations, DfE regulations, building regulations etc etc

    Curlygirl is correct . . .I'd just add that this isn't a Governance issue

    Apologies - I meant the chasing and following of legislation, obviously H&S is a matter of Governance. If the OP had been asking about the principles of over crowding rather than seeking a factual answer about legislation I wouldn't have commented

    Cor you are picky! Any answer which gives me a few clues will do. It can't be a completely "open chequebook" area. I can understand that the "average" governor will rely on the clerk for this kind of stuff if they need it, who in turn, if they pay for it, relies on LA governors' service and the legal services of the LA. But some GBs do it all themselves. And I was asking Stephen!!

    Hence the word 'apologies' in my last post!
