Written answers (Question to Education)

The Deputy may be aware that I recently announced details of the schools that will receive funding in summer 2020 in respect of applications submitted for "Life Safety Systems projects".

I can confirm to the Deputy that an application for 'Windows Projects' has been received, from the school authority in question, under my Department's multi annual Summer Works Scheme (SWS) 2020 onwards.

Commensurate with the level of funding set aside for the Scheme, applications are being assessed on a top down basis in accordance with the prioritisation criteria outlined in the Circular accompanying the Scheme. In this regard, applications submitted for other works will be considered under future rounds of the Summer works Scheme. The school in question will be considered in this regard.
