CSSC Statement: Misrepresentation of controlled schools

29 February 2024

CSSC remains concerned about the unhelpful misrepresentation of controlled schools. The controlled sector is open to all in actions and not simply aspiration. As stated at the NI Affairs committee yesterday we continue to support inclusion, sharing and integration. 

CSSC believes that all sectors must work together and that the collaboration must remain respectful and evidence informed.

Limavady Shared Education Campus opening - A leading example of shared education and inclusion in action

21 February 2024

The  £11million shared education campus in Limavady was officially opened by the First Minister Michelle O’Neill and deputy First Minister Emma Little-Pengelly. Education Minister Paul Givan accompanied the ministers to view the newly completed campus bringing together St Mary’s and Limavady High School sites with a range of new shared facilities.  

CCMS, the managing authority for Catholic maintained schools and CSSC, the support body for controlled schools, jointly congratulated Limavady High School and St. Mary’s High School on the official opening of our first Shared Education Campus. Limavady Shared Education Campus is a leading example of shared education and inclusion in action in the Limavady community. The opening of the campus follows decades of cooperation between the two schools ensuring the children and young people in Limavady were educated together.
