The school referred to by the Deputy was approved a project under my Department's Additional Accommodation Scheme in September 2018 and its delivery has been devolved to the school authority. When completed the project will deliver  9 Mainstream classrooms, 9 WC's, 1 Assisted Users WC, 2 Science Labs and Prep Area, and 1 x 119m2 Arts & Crafts Room.

I can confirm that the project is currently at pre Stage 1 (Preliminary Design). Once the Stage 1 submission is submitted to my Department and approved the project will move to Stage 2A (Developed Design) and following approval to Stage 2B (Detailed Design) and then to Stage 3 (Tender Action) and Stage 4 (Construction).

It is not possible at this early stage to give a definite timeline for construction.
