I can confirm to the Deputy that the school in question has submitted an application for External Environment Projects under my Department's multi-annual Summer Works Scheme (SWS) 2020 onwards.

The Deputy may be aware that I recently announced details of the 405 schools that will receive funding in summer 2020 under the summer works programme.

Commensurate with the level of funding set aside for the Scheme, applications are being assessed on a top down basis in accordance with the prioritisation criteria outlined in the Circular accompanying the Scheme. In this regard, applications submitted for other works will be considered under future rounds of the Summer Works Scheme.
