I can confirm that the Department has received an application from the school referred to by the Deputy for the provision of additional accommodation. This application is currently under assessment.

The school has also applied for funding under the Emergency Works scheme. Its applications in this respect have been refused as being outside the terms of the Scheme. However, I can inform the Deputy that projects of this type may be appropriate for delivery via the Summer Works Scheme. It is open to the school authority to apply for Summer Works funding when the scheme opens for applications. I refer the Deputy to my announcement on 29th March last in that respect.
