A Belfast principal has told an audience at the House of Lords that the success of his primary school proves the value of integration and the demand for places in integrated education. Cliftonville Integrated Primary School became officially integrated in 2008 and the decade since then has seen it become one of the fastest-growing primary schools in Northern Ireland.
Head teacher Bill Fletcher was invited to address a gathering of around a hundred Integrated Education Fund supporters at a dinner at Westminster last Monday (05 November). The audience included business leaders, entertainers, writers and campaigners for integrated education as well as peers and past pupils of integrated schools.
