Durkan asked the Minister for Education and Skills the position in respect of a proposal to replace the primary school at Newtown, Enfield, County Kildare, with particular reference to the need to address demographic challenges in the area; if a timescale for delivery has been agreed in this regard; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The School to which the Deputy refers was awarded devolved funding under the Additional Accommodation Scheme 2018 to provide four new classrooms and ancillary facilities. The School Authority has recently been given permission to proceed with an application for planning permission for the project. As it has been devolved for delivery to the school authority, it is now a matter for the Board of Management of the school to advance this project.
