Students at a leaky primary school will spend the winter in mouldy classrooms after officials failed to organise plans for temporary buildings in time.

Clayton Park School in Manukau has walls lined with toxic mould and four rooms have been shut because of safety concerns. Relocatable classrooms for its youngest pupils will not be in place until November, which Principal Paul Wright says is because Ministry of Education officials did not apply for planning consents within the time frame needed.

The buildings were to be a temporary measure while the decile 2 school waits for a total rebuild of its leaky, ageing buildings - one of about 15 schools across the country due a major upgrade but yet to have a confirmed start date.

The Ministry of Education's deputy head of the Education Infrastructure Service, Jerome Sheppard, said as soon as it realised the July date was based on an outdated plan, it fronted up to the school and apologised.

Associate Education Minister Nikki Kaye told the Herald last week the scale and number of rebuilds needed was higher than first thought. The Government has set aside $300 million specifically for major rebuilds, in addition to the $1.3 billion for modernisation due over 10 years.
