Written answers (Question to Education)

The school to which the Deputy refers applied for funding under my Department's Emergency Works Scheme for repair of its boundary wall. As the scope of the works were outside the terms of the scheme, the application was refused and the school was advised that the correct mechanism for delivery of works of this nature was the Summer Works Scheme.

The school authority is entitled to appeal this decision by forwarding additonal relevant information by email to emergency_works@education.gov.ie.
