I can confirm to the Deputy that the school in question applied for the partial replacement of a roof under the current Summer Works Scheme however the school authority prioritised electrical works which received funding.

It is open to the school to apply for the roof works under the next Summer Works Scheme which will open for applications in 2019 for projects to be delivered from summer 2020.
