Update (21/09/23): Ysgol Maes Owen – RAAC
We’ve been carrying out further investigations at Ysgol Maes Owen to find out as much as we can about the Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) in the school building.
RAAC was located in two areas of the school and its condition has been fully checked.
Work is now taking place to remove an exterior canopy, and to replace the ceiling and lighting in the classrooms and corridor where investigation work was carried out. We expect this work to take about two weeks.
The investigations confirmed that the school hall does not contain RAAC. The school hall has its own entrance and won’t be affected by the work so, in agreement with the headteacher, we have decided to use the hall for classes while the work takes place.
Parents have been informed of the arrangements being put in place for learners.
