Written answers (Question to Education)

I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department has received an application from the Patron of the school, in question, for the provision of Capital funding for additional accommodation. The application is currently under consideration and once the assessment process has been completed a decision will be conveyed directly to the school authority.

In the meantime, I can also advise that the Patron has sought funding towards the provision of an interim accommodation solution. I am pleased to advise the Deputy that my Department has recently approved funding to allow the Patron proceed with the interim accommodation solution identified.
