Abstract

Since 1998 several primary schools have been built in Coventry which follow the guidelines contained in a model brief developed by CoventryCity Council. This paper describes a systematic approach to evaluating the effectiveness of these buildings through the development and implementationa Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) toolkit designed for primary schools. The rationale for performing a POE in the educational setting in which all stakeholders can give their feedback will be presented prior to a description of the development of the toolkit. This comprised an in-depth questionnaire for all adult stakeholders and a scheme of work designed for children. An analysis of the preliminary results from the first stage of its implementation will be presented.
