On 29 November 2023 it was announced that the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee at Westminster has launched an inquiry into Integrated Education. The Northern Ireland Affairs Committee’s new inquiry will examine the cost and implications of the current two-track system, of an expansion of Integrated Education, and outcomes for pupils and Northern Irish society.

Sir Robert Buckland MP, the Committee’s new Chair said:

“Despite having public backing and the legislation to support them, integrated schools in Northern Ireland, with students from both Protestant and Catholic backgrounds, remain rare. In new legislation last year, Stormont committed to the development of integrated education in Northern Ireland. With this new inquiry, we aim to find out what this looks like and establish the policy choices that will face Northern Ireland’s Department for Education as they turn to implementation of their plans.”

Written and oral evidence was submitted online and is now available to read online.
