Written answers (Question to Education)

I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department has recently received a request from a primary school in County Kildare to change its status to a co-educational school.

In considering the request, my Department has sought additional information from the Patron of the school in question. The matter can be considered further following receipt of this information.
