Questions and final response:

Question 1 - Please can I obtain information on any incidents related to Ramsden Heath School including Fire Safety over the last 10 years.

This includes but is not exclusive to the fire Outward Common Road in Billericay in 2014.


We are unable to find a school called Ramsen Heath School, we presume Downham Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School, Church Rd, Ramsden Heath, Billericay CM11 1NU is the school that you are requiring information for, this is the only school located in the vicinity specified.

We have searched all incidents with the above post code and also with Church Road, we were unable to find any incidents that referenced both the post code and the address.

We have searched for incidents in the locality referencing Church Road and have found four incidents, these are shown in the attached spreadsheet.

The Outwood Common Road incident that you refer to in 2014, we have found one that possibly relates.

The detail for this incident is also included in the attached spreadsheet.


We hope this information is useful to you.
