Written Answers. - Schools Survey.

Ms Harkin asked the Minister for Education and Science if a copy of the ERC survey in relation to a school (details supplied) in County Leitrim is available for public inspection. [26235/06]

  Ms Hanafin:The Educational Research Centre does not release information provided by individual schools as part of the survey referred to by the Deputy. It is a matter for the authorities of each school to decide whether any or all of the responses it made to the survey should be made available and, if so, to whom.

A review process has been put in place for both primary and second-level schools. The review process applies only to those primary schools that participated in the ERC survey in May 2005 and only to those eligible second-level schools for which data were available from the relevant databases.

The school referred to by the Deputy has submitted a review application. It is anticipated that the review process will be completed shortly.
