The Drop-In Sessions will give you an opportunity to meet face to face with SEN Link Officers who are best placed to help answer any questions you have about your child’s statutory assessment, your child’s statement of Special Educational Needs or nominating appropriate schools for the next part of your child’s education.

⬇️ The first of these drop-in sessions will be taking place in February at the Education Authority, Academy Street, Belfast and parents and carers in the Belfast and Dundonald area are welcome to attend. These sessions will operate on a first come first serve basis.

Further dates will be issued for sessions across the region in due course.

Our schools are proudly all ability and achieve fantastic results at GCSE and A-level.

You don't need to sit an entrance test for our post primary schools, and pupils can access a wide range of qualifications to help them move onto the next stage of their education and chosen career.

Non-grammar schools have seen the biggest rise in the number of pupils achieving A*-C GCSE including English and Maths, and our schools deliver some of the best outcomes of non-selective schools.

👇Club development - we need your help by completing a short SURVEY (1 min max) 👇

The club has been a part of our rural community since 1960 and our objective is to provide sporting, recreational, social and leisure opportunities to young and old in our locality. It is a focal point for community life and over the last number of years, our committee has worked diligently to improve and enhance existing facilities to our site on the Newry Road, as well as adding new facilities for betterment of our rural community.

This community survey has been designed and shaped to enable us to assess the needs of our rural community and ensure that any capital redevelopments or improvement work facilitated by the club is reflective of their needs and that it does not duplicate facilities that already exist in our area. We need as many as possible(young and old) to complete this to help guide us in any future funding bids.

🙋Please kindly take approx 1 min to complete a short survey 🙋
