The school referred to by the Deputy was approved to enter my Department’s pipeline of school buildings for a project to provide a 3 classroom SEN Early Intervention extension under the Additional School Accommodation Scheme.

In Q2 2023 the school authority submitted their Stage 1 report. This was forwarded to my Departments Professional and Technical team for review. The submission required clarification and comments issued to the school requesting additional information to complete this review. This information was received in Q1 2024 and combined comments issued to the school approving the project to progress to Stage 2b detailed design stage.

It is now up to the school authority to instruct the appointed Design Team to prepare a Stage 2b Report for submission and review by officials at my Department.
