Review of Controlled Education Provision in Forge Integrated Primary School 2016
We are working with the Education Authority Northern Ireland to establish long term solutions to our accomodation needs and enhance sustainable Integrated primary provision for south east Belfast.
To that end a Development Proposal was approved by the DE Permanent Secretary on the 16th April 2018 to relocate Forge IPS. Detail of the Development Proposal can be found here: https://www.education-ni.gov.uk/sites/default/files/publications/education/DP%20463%20Forge%20Integrated%20Primary%20School.pdf
The Education Authority have identified the site of the former Knockbreda High School as their preffered option for re-location. This is a significant project involving the demolition of the old HIgh School and a new build primary school. Greater clarity around the timescale will emerge in the coming months but at this stage we anticipate that it will be a minimum of three years in the making.
We await a decision on two further linked development proposals relating to nursery provision and a special unit.
Details of the Proposals can be viewed here.
Parents who feel they need further clarification of the proposal can contact the school and arrange to speak to the Principal.
