I can confirm to the Deputy that the school in question made an application under my Department's Additional School Accommodation Scheme. The application was assessed and the school authority was informed, in writing, that the works required did not fall under the remit of the Additional School Accommodation scheme. The school was advised that the works required are proper to the Summer Works Scheme and it was open to them to apply under future rounds of this Scheme.

Alternatively, if the school authority considers the works a priority, they may use the minor works grant which all primary schools receive to carry out the works in full, or on a phased basis as the grant permits.
