A recent news article by the BBC has highlighted the growing concern that many school pupils are having to learn in classrooms were temperatures are exceeding 30 degrees, which in turn is having an adverse effect on their learning capabilities.

The main problem highlighted was insufficient protection given to large glazed areas which many new build schools now incorporate.
