Written answers (Question to Education)

In March 2012 the school referred to by the Deputy was approved devolved funding for the construction of 2 mainstream classrooms under my Department's Additional Accommodation Scheme. The school authorities have applied for additional funding to enable them build 2 mainstream classrooms and a GP Room. A member of the Department's Professional and Technical staff is due to visit the school in the coming days.

A decision on the school's application for additional funding will be made following this visit and the school authorities notified accordingly.
