Abstract

Since 1998 several primary schools have been built in Coventry that follow the guidelines contained in a model brief developed by Coventry City Council. This paper presents an overview of key findings from the implementation of a Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) toolkit. This was the first to be specifically designed for U.K. primary schools and formed a systematic approach to evaluating the effectiveness of these buildings. The POE comprised an in-depth questionnaire for all adult stakeholders and a scheme of work designed for children. Approximately 1600 people were involved in the survey. A broad overview of the significant findings of the research will be presented, including an evaluation of key aspects of the model brief.
