I am pleased to inform the Deputy that, in relation to the school to which he refers, my Department has approved funding for a permanent extension consisting of 3 general classrooms, 3 SET rooms/offices, a science laboratory and preparation area, an art room, and toilets. This funding is being provided under my Department's Additional Accommodation Scheme 2019.
I can also inform the Deputy that, pending the delivery of this permanent extension, my Department has also approved interim temporary accommodation consisting of 3 mainstream classrooms with toilets along with the conversion of an existing space to create a science laboratory. This accommodation will be in place for September 2020.
The requirement for new schools will be kept under on-going review and, in particular, will have regard to the increased rollout of housing provision as outlined in Project Ireland 2040.
