I can confirm to the Deputy that applications received under my Department’s Additional School Accommodation scheme are considered where an immediate long-term enrolment need has been identified and additional teacher(s) has been appointed and the school’s existing accommodation is not in a position to meet that need. In such cases, my Department would provide funding to a school for the necessary additional classroom(s).
