Lough View Integrated Primary is a Grant Maintained Integrated primary school situated in a semi-rural location in the Castlereagh Hills. The school’s catchment extends in all directions drawing pupils from both of the main religious/cultural backgrounds as well as children from other backgrounds.
We have 2 form entry from Year 1 to 7 and 2 nursery classes. This equates to around 420 children in primary and 52 in nursery.
Lough View Integrated is a Rights Respecting School and we strive to create a safe and happy environment in which all children will be valued as individuals, where their academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual needs are met, where their potential is realised whilst nurturing understanding of diversity, respect for others and a readiness to support and care for each other within the community and the world at large. The UNCRC underpins our vision and should be evident in all aspects of school life.
We are excited to take part in this project to allow us to look at our own history as a school as well as share the stories and history of our families. We hope that by taking part in this project, the children will leave a lasting legacy with an Annual Peace Match involving past pupils.

The children took this opportunity to find out about their own families and were really surprised to find out about some relatives they had never heard about and stories they didn’t know. It helped open up channels of conversation between parents and children as well as grandparents and other relations. The children could choose to present their research in any way they wanted and choose a variety of creative methods including PowerPoints, diagrams, posters, newspaper articles and even a short animated film. It also provided an opportunity to talk about what integration truly means and how sport can be used as a vehicle to achieve this.
Participation is key. Games and sports come in all forms and provide lasting memories. HORSE RIDING MAKES OUR SHARED HISTORY.
