Building Bulletin 102
- Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF)
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
Building Bulletin 102 provides a framework for designing new school buildings for disabled children and children with special educational needs (SEN) within any setting, mainstream or special. The purpose of this title is to offer a strategic master plan and a carefully considered brief to ensure that the design takes on board the organisation, aims and priorities of the school.
This bulletin sets out 'inclusive design principles' that should underpin every project for disabled children and those with SEN. Case studies and illustrated examples are provided to show how these design principles can be implemented.
The central chapters are divided by phase of education, highlighting to local authorities and all those involved in the early stages of a project the key features when designing specific school spaces. Technical guidance follows, covering building construction, environmental services and the ICT needed to support children with SEN and disabilities.
