A poll of East Belfast parents has shown that most would prefer a school for their children which is openly welcoming to pupils from all sections of the community, with 76% of those questioned saying they would support their local school becoming integrated.
The IEF commissioned independent polling company LucidTalk to carry out this Micro-Poll and responses were received from over 200 parents, with at least one child under the age of 12, living in the East Belfast area.
The East Belfast community are now invited to an informal event hosted online by the Integrated Education Fund on 25 March at 12.30 to hear more about the research, to ask questions as well as to explore possible future primary school provision in the area.
The IEF and LucidTalk would be delighted to see as many as possible attending the event and to hear your views. To register, please visit: https://tinyurl.com/p6teha68
If you have any questions, or if you’re not able to attend but would like more information, please email Jessica@ief.org.uk.
