Parliamentary Question for the Minister for Education and Skills (Ruairi Quinn TD)
For WRITTEN ANSWER on 27/05/2014
To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if his attention has been drawn to the difficulty of parents in enrolling children in a school (details supplied) in County Cork; if he will consider facilitating the expansion of the school to cater for the increased population of the area; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
As the Deputy will be aware, a substantial 8 classroom extension to the school in question was completed in 2013. In addition, a new primary school was also opened in September last in the area concerned to meet demographic demand. My Department is not in receipt of an application for additional accommodation from the school referred to by the Deputy. I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department will however keep pupil enrolments in the area concerned under review
