Written answers (Question to Education)

In accordance with the provisions of the Education Act 1998, the appointment of a board of management of a school is a matter for the relevant school patron. Under the provisions of this Act, where a Patron determines that the appointment of a Board is not practicable, the Patron may appoint a manager or managers to perform the functions of the Board.

In the case of the school in question, the patron has determined that the appointment of a Board is not practicable and, in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Education Act 1998, appointed a single manager to manage the school. The Deputy will appreciate that the appointment of a board of management is solely a matter for the relevant school patron and that I have no role in this regard.
