Caerphilly Council says pupils and staff will be able to return to Cwmcarn High School following a decision by members to approve £1m funding for emergency remediation of asbestos at the site.
Pupils will return to temporary accommodation while the works are undertaken and the school could be open for reoccupation in September this year.
The council will now enter into a grant arrangement with the Governing Body who will procure, commission and manage the asbestos works at the school.
I welcome the decision and I’m sure the whole school community will be delighted that a way forward has been agreed.
We took a very difficult, but correct decision last October to temporarily close the school.
