Integration

What is Integrated Education?

Integrated Education brings children and staff from Catholic and Protestant traditions, as well as those of other beliefs, cultures and communities together in one school. Integrated Schools ensure that children from Protestant and Catholic religious and/or cultural backgrounds, as well as others who identify differently are educated together every day in the same classrooms. 

 

Integrated education is value-driven and child-centred. It is delivered through a holistic approach with an emphasis on developing every aspect of a child’s or young person’s potential.

It is important to note that Integrated Schools are essentially Christian in character but proactively strive to ensure everyone’s tradition is respected and included. Empowering adults, children and young people as thinking individuals is a priority for us at Cedar Integrated Primary School so that as our pupils grow and mature, they’ll be able to affect positive change in the shared society we live in.

 

As an integrated school we  subscribe to these core principles:

  • Equality

  • Faith and Values

  • Parental Involvement

  • Social responsibility

The Bees and The Wind

Our staff were delighted to attend the launch of Amelia Kai's new storybook The Bees and The Wind.

The story has been developed as part of the celebrations marking 40 years of Integrated Education. The beautiful narrative is a reminder of all the hard work that has gone into getting us to where we are today. The bravery of those first parents, pupils and teachers who looked beyond the limited resources available, to the greater benefit for their children, and for society. The book has been developed to help open up discussions about Integrated Education with young children; both in the classroom and at home.
