Integration Works – New Guidance for Parents Launched


Many parents tell us they support integrated education – and more people are becoming aware that it is possible for schools to become integrated with parents’ support. Now the Northern Ireland Council for Integrated Education (NICIE) and the Integrated Education Fund (IEF) have produced Integration Works – A Short Guide to Integrated Education especially for parents.

Integration Works – New Guidance for Parents LaunchedThe booklet demonstrates the key role parents play in the process of ‘transforming’ a school to integrated status. The publication was launched at Cliftonville Integrated Primary School, which became integrated 10 years ago, and was welcomed by Parenting NI.

Last year the Department of Education published a guidance document on integrated education for school leaders around Northern Ireland.
