Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

I understand that the Deputy's office has clarified that the question relates to a specific pupil in the school. I can confirm that my Department received a professional report for the pupil in October 2003. However, my Department has no record of having received an application from the school for special education needs, SEN, supports. My officials will contact the school to clarify the position shortly.
