South African Schools Act 84 of 1996. National Minimum Uniform Norms and Standards for School Infrastructure

The norms and standards presented in this document are underpinned by the above referred National Policy for Equitable Provision of an Enabling School Physical Teaching and Learning Environment. The policy comprises 6 strategic and 2 operational policy statements. The first of the 6 strategic policy statements calls for the development of norms and standards for equitable provision of an enabling physical teaching and learning environment as an urgent priority. The national policy further states that national norms and standards would be developed during 2008, fully adopted by the end of 2009, and implemented by 2010. Thus, this document serves as the first step towards the operationalization of the national policy. As national instruments, these norms and standards will apply to ALL public ordinary schools (excluding hostels) that operate in South Africa, regardless of the ownership.
