I propose to take Questions Nos. 138 to 140, inclusive, together.

I wish to advice the Deputy that my Department has carried out a detailed analysis to identify areas where, due to demographic growth, there may be a requirement for additional school provision both at primary and post-primary level. It was identified that there is a need for additional post-primary provision in the Lucan School Planning Area (SPA), and on this basis the Department requested Dublin Dun Laoghaire ETB’s (DDLETB) approval, as Patron, to increase the Long-Term Projected Enrolment (LTPE) of the school in question to 1,000 students.

This school, in agreement with the Department and Patron, DDLETB, has agreed to increase their Long Term Projected Enrolment (LTPE) to 1,000 pupils from September 2021.

Officials from my Department have recently corresponded with the school Patron regarding increasing the existing accommodation brief to cater for the Long-Term Projected enrolment and to identify any interim accommodation needs. On receipt of reply the application for additional accommodation will be progressed.

Question No. 139 answered with Question No. 138.
Question No. 140 answered with Question No. 138.
