Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department has no current record of receiving an application for additional accommodation from the school in question.

My Department's capital investment programme provides for devolved funding for additional classrooms for existing schools where an immediate enrolment need has been identified. All school capital projects that have been approved, by my Department, under the Additional School Accommodation Scheme (ASA), may be viewed on my Department’s website, www.education.ie, which is updated regularly.

It is open to the school authority in question to make an application under my Department's Additional School Accommodation Scheme, information relating to same is available on www.education.ie.
