A Conwy-based primary school will remain closed for the remainder of the week due to the discovery of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) during an inspection of the premises.

According to Conwy council, initial assessments suggest that the material discovered at Ysgol Maes Owen in Kinmel Bay is in a satisfactory condition.

The council said that they were “taking a cautious approach,” to the situation.

The council mentioned that additional investigations would be conducted by structural engineers. 

This decision follows apprehensions about potentially hazardous RAAC, which led to the closure of over 100 educational establishments in England.

In Wales, two schools on Anglesey had previously shut down as a result of inspections, with one of them having since reopened.
