The Statistic's Section of my Department's website i.e. www.education/statistics.ie contains extensive data at individual school level in County order. The most recent published information relates to the 2013/2014 school year.

The National School Annual Census is generally returned by schools to the Department by end October. Data relating to the 2014/15 school year will be published later in the current school year.

Due to additional funding made available for the schools' building programme as part of the Government's "Investing in Infrastructure and Jobs" package, 28 school projects that were not contained in the Five Year Plan but had completed extensive architectural planning are now being progressed to tender and construction. One school in the area to which the Deputy refers benefitted from this initiative.

My Department is also considering applications for capital works from two schools in the area and my Department expects to be in a position to liaise further with the schools in question shortly.
