I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department is in receipt of an application, for additional accommodation, from the school in question.

As part of the assessment process, officials from my Department have been in contact with the school authority regarding additional information which has now been provided. The application is currently under assessment and it is envisaged that a decision will be conveyed to the school authority shortly.
