A SCHOOL in Denbighshire remains closed following the discovery of RAAC at the site last week.

The potentially dangerous Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) was found in a section of the roof at Ysgol Trefnant near St Asaph.

The council said checks for RAAC had been undertaken at the school since 2019-2020 but a further inspection work found RAAC planks in areas of the flat roof.

The school was initially closed just on Friday, 15 September but remains shut indefinitely while work is undertaken to mitigate the effect of RAAC and make the school safer.

The council said parents and staff would be updated on a reopening date "in due course".

A Denbighshire County Council spokesperson said: "Following the discovery of Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) in a section of Ysgol Trefnant buildings last week, the decision was made to close the school on Friday, 15 September pending further investigations.

"Following further assessments, Denbighshire County Council is now undertaking temporary works to ensure that additional roof support is provided for the affected areas to enable the school to reopen safely to pupils. 

"Council officers are working with the school to monitor progress and will update staff and parents about the reopening date in due course."
