St. Joseph's School and Sixth Form: 21/01/2018

UPDATE: Cwmavon Landslip

UPDATE (8th January 2018)

Cwmavon Road has now been reopened by NPT Council under traffic light control.

Bus operators have been informed to revert to usual pick up and drop off points.


The school has been in discussion with Neath Port Talbot CBC over the last few days in relation to the landslip that occurred on the Cwmavon Road.

The school has a planned INSET Day on Monday 8th January 2018.

If there continues to be road closures on Tuesday 9th January, then students from the Cwmavon area who catch a ‘Home to School Transport’ bus provided by the Local Authority will be able to catch their bus from their usual stop at the usual time.

However buses will turn around at Cae Glas bus stop and follow the diversion. There will be no collections South of Cae Glas. The school will be aware of the late arrival of pupils and there will be no late marks recorded. Afternoon arrival home in Cwmavon will be later due to the diversion.

No other students will be affected and the school will return as planned on Tuesday 9th January 2018.
