What is Integrated Education ?
Integrated education creates a positive environment where students grow together in reasonably balanced numbers from the two major traditions and, equally, reflecting the many diverse cultures that live within Northern Ireland today. The key aims of Integration involve the provision of the highest possible quality of education for each student and the fostering of an inclusive learning community where all feel welcomed, valued and inspired to excel.
Integration In Our School
As an Integrated school we seek to promote an awareness of and a respect for the religious beliefs and the cultural traditions of others. We cultivate an environment where students can recognise what they hold in common as well as what separates them, and accept them both. At our school discrimination on any grounds is not tolerated. The utmost care is taken to ensure that all students are treated fairly and equally and to ensure that there is no discrimination based on gender, religion, social background or ability. We hope that our students have a happy and positive experience here. One student has summed it up by saying, "I think that it is a good school as it gives us a chance to mix with people from different colours, religions, abilities and beliefs." Meaningful parental involvement is central to the success of integrated education and we are most effective in terms of academic learning, behaviour and personal development when we work closely with parents.
