Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that the project to which she refers is currently in construction stage and subject to no issues arising the school should be ready for occupation in September 2019.  The project does not include the provision of Special Educational Needs Base as it would not have been feasible on the site without a reduction in the number of mainstream classrooms for the new school.
