I can confirm that the school referred to by the Deputy has submitted an application to my Department for capital funding for additional school accommodation.

I understand that since making the application, that enrolment numbers have decreased below the level required to retain the fourth mainstream class teacher. In the circumstances, the school has sufficient existing classroom accommodation to meet its current needs.
