I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department is in receipt of an application, for capital funding, under the Additional School Accommodation scheme, from the school authority in question.  Once the application has been assessed, the school authority will be contacted directly with a decision in writing.

The Deputy will be aware that a building project for the school in question is included on the Department's Capital Programme to be delivered as part of the National Development Plan (NDP).

My Department has secured a site for the construction of a permanent building for the school and is currently finalising the project brief. My Department will continue to keep the school's patron updated in this regard.  It is not possible to provide an indicative timeframe for the construction of the new school at this time.
