Kincorth and Torry Academies Condition and Suitability Information

Condition and Suitability


Aberdeen City Council is required to maintain its assets in a condition that allows the facility to function over its lifetime. To evaluate and prioritise investment to maintain its school buildings, audits of the condition of the suitability of all school buildings is carried out.

Within this specific context for schools, we need to develop a holistic asset management strategy that effectively, efficiently and economically meets the needs of our communities. This strategy must help to drive the integration of services and improvement in learning outcomes through maximising the combined impact of schools, libraries, community centres, housing, and sports and cultural facilities.

Condition is evaluated on a four point scale:

A: Good - performing well and operating efficiently

B: Satisfactory - performing adequately but showing minor deterioration

C: Poor - showing major defects and/or not operating efficiently

D: Bad - life expired and/or serious risk of imminent failure

 
Suitability is also evaluated on a four point scale:

A: Good - Performing well and operating efficiently (the school buildings and grounds support the delivery of services to children and communities)

B: Satisfactory - Performing well but with minor problems (the school buildings and grounds generally support the delivery of services to children and communities)

C: Poor - Showing major problems and/or not operating optimally (the school buildings and grounds impede the delivery of activities that are needed for children and communities in the school)

D: Bad - Does not support the delivery of services to children and communities (the school buildings seriously impede the delivery of activities that are needed for children and communities in the school)

The overall ratings for both Condition and Suitability are reached using a range of weighted criteria. In all schools, there will be elements which are better and poorer than the overall evaluation.
