Written answers (Question to Education)

I can confirm that the school in question applied for funding under SWS 2020 for the replacement of the windows (Category 7).

The school authorities may be aware that the Minister recently announced details of the schools that will receive funding in summer 2021 in respect of applications submitted for Roof projects and Toilet Facilities projects.

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 that 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.
