Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that there is a mix of purchased temporary accommodation and permanent accommodation on the school site. While a major capital project for the school is not included on my Department's 5 year plan, my Department is currently considering, with the school, how best to address the replacement of temporary accommodation on the site, including phased delivery via devolved funding. The first step in this process is to determine the long term projected enrolment for the school with the Patron and this process is currently in train.
