Written answers (Question to Education)

The report to which the Deputy refers follows an inspection visit to the school by a member of my Department's inspectorate on 11th June 2019.

Officials of my Department are due to meet with the school authorities later this month to discuss the recommendations contained the Inspector's report and related matters.

My Department will also engage with other stakeholders involved with the school, including the NCSE, HSE, patron and trustees, to ensure appropriate educational provision is in place for the students in the school.

The report will not be available to the wider public until my Department has completed its work with the school, patron, trustees and HSE in relation to the recommendations of this report.
