WATER SYSTEM UPDATE

Cefn Saeson School will be open as normal next week (from Monday 18/12/17).

On Thursday (14/12/17) we were made aware that a result of a routine sample test showed higher than normal legionella levels, of the least harmful type of legionella bacteria. Legionella is a naturally occurring bacteria and is safe to drink it only becomes dangerous when air born from showers or spray taps and this water mist is breathed into the lungs. The Bacteria is similar to Pneumonia.

Our water system has now been cleaned, chlorinated and flushed throughout the school as an extra precaution so we can provide the safest environment for our pupils and staff. In partnership with the Local Authority we will be monitoring the situation closely going forward.

The school will be open as normal next week.
