As the Deputy is aware, a campus development for Navan is already in train which will provide for a primary, post primary and special school to cater for the projected pupil growth in the area over the coming years. My Department has no plans to develop a second campus for the school to which the Deputy refers.

The school concerned recently applied to my Department for funding to replace temporary accommodation. The application is currently being considered and my Department will be in contact with the school authorities as soon as this process has been completed. In the circumstances, a meeting with the Deputy is not considered necessary at this time.
