DfE Condition Survey Data Collection Programme



We wrote to you in October, 2020 about the Condition Data Collection 2 (CDC2) programme and the provisional timetable for implementation, and said that we would keep you updated on progress.

Main News Story

CDC2 is the successor to the CDC programme which ran from 2017 to 2019 and aims to visit every government funded school in England and collect information about the condition and management of school buildings. Data from CDC2 will directly inform future investment in the condition of school buildings and will provide an evidence base to support the successful delivery and development of education capital policy.
CDC2 will be delivered over 5 years, from 2021-2026. The CDC2 pilot visits were successfully completed in February, 2021. We are now moving into the delivery phase for the main CDC2 programme and surveying organisations have held preliminary virtual meetings with the first schools and site visits will start from w/c 5 April.
We have published CDC2 guidance on GOV.UK. We have also published the provisional timescales that all schools will be visited across the programme to help responsible bodies with their local condition survey planning. The provisional visit dates are scheduled into tranches that span 6 months. The full provisional tranche list is subject to change and we will publish the confirmed list of schools included in each tranche on GOV.UK every 6 months. The confirmed school visits for tranches 1 and 2 are already on GOV.UK and we will let you know when each finalised tranche list is published.
We know there are still challenges visiting schools over the coming months during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and will continue to work closely with local authorities, multi-academy trusts, dioceses and schools to ensure the CDC2 site visits cause minimal disruption to schools.
If you have any questions, please email dfe.cdcprogramme@education.gov.uk.
We look forward to your continued support for the CDC2 programme.
