?"We look forward to working with the council to progress the scheme" said Gary Thomas, Chair of Governors at Cwmcarn.
"I would like to thank everyone for their patience over the last few months while we worked hard to resolve this issue".
"We are aiming to get pupils back on site on September 2, but to do this we will need to provide temporary accommodation as a short term measure while works are completed within the school buildings" said Cllr Rhianon Passmore, Caerphilly Council's member for education.
I would like to assure the school community that we are ready to move quickly as soon as a decision is made, but we are becoming increasingly frustrated by the school’s lack of progress and it now seems we must wait until next week for a decision to be made.
Time is fast running out and I would urge the school leadership to take decisive action before we miss our window of opportunity to get the work done in time,” he added.

More than five hundred pupils and their parents have marched through Cwmcarn today in an attempt to persuade the local council to reopen their school.

But two subsequent reports have argued that the building is "essentially uncontaminated", so parents now say they want their children back at the site. With more, here's our Valleys reporter Hannah Thomas.
