Written answers (Question to Education)

My Department has no plans to establish a third junior infant class at the school referred to by the Deputy. The school in question was established on the basis that it would develop naturally over time to become a two stream, 16 mainstream teacher school. It is intended that the school, along with other schools in the area, will cater for demand for primary school places into the future. The Department's position has also been confirmed to the school's Patron.
