Re: A school has been forced to close suddenly after geological experts found a potential landslide risk at Godre'r Graig Primary School, near Pontardawe.<br />
Experts from th Earth Science Partnership, who were commissioned by Neath Port Talbot Council, found a medium level risk from a quarry spoil tip near the school, linked to springs and ground water nearby.  Experts said that if a stream was blocked during bad weather, rising water levels and pressures in the tip could cause material to flow downhill.<br />
An emergency meeting of senior council officers and members was held, who took the decision to close the school immediately, ahead of the summer holidays .<br />
Pupils at the school will be relocated to another site in September.
