I can confirm to the Deputy that the school in question will be relocating to its permanent location on the site of an existing post primary school for the forthcoming school year. The site is in the ownership of Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDETB), who is also patron of both schools.

DDETB has appointed a Design Team to oversee the works required to the school building to facilitate the special school’s occupancy of a section of the building. This project is phase one of a two phase development. The planning work associated with phase two will commence shortly and will include an extension to provide additional accommodation to facilitate the school’s future growth.
