The school referred to by the Deputy was allocated a devolved grant for prefabricated accommodation in October 2018 under my Department Additional Accommodation Scheme which will enable the school authority deliver 5 x Mainstream Classrooms, En-suite Toilets, Shower Area & Staff Toilets, Multi-sensory room, 3 x Small Safe Places, Storage, Staff Room & Office/Administration Room to meet the short to medium term accommodation needs of school and pupils concerned. The school is not included in my Department's current school building programme for a permanent building.

I understand that the project is currently going through architectural planning and that a planning application has been submitted to the relevant local authority. 

Any meeting requests can be forwarded to diary@education.gov.ie and they will be considered.
