Mr Jarvis also said the school has been working with contact tracers and Caerphilly County Borough Council’s environmental health department “to ensure all appropriate measures are in place to protect pupils, staff and the wider community”.
The school will remain open, with pupils outside of Years 12 and 13 not required to self-isolate, unless they develop symptoms of coronavirus.
Positive cases of Covid-19 have also been reported at Bedwas Infant School and Bedwas Junior School, as well as St Gwladys primary in Bargoed, Llanfabon Infants in Nelson and Hendre Junior School in Trecenydd. All schools remain open.
Stay informed with quality, independent, local journalism…that matters For the last ten years, Caerphilly Observer has provided an award-winning, balanced, and independent news service to the people of Caerphilly County Borough.
We believe the public should be informed about their community, coherently and with context. However, running a professional news service comes at a financial cost.
We are asking readers for their support to help us develop and grow our service.
Our membership costs from just £3 a month and in return, you can use our website without adverts.
