Statement of the General Synod Board of Education Following the Forum on the Role of Religion in Primary School Admissions

The Church of Ireland’s General Synod Board of Education is grateful for the opportunity to participate in today’s Forum on the Role of Religion in Primary School Admissions hosted by the Minister for Education and Skills.

Having heard the range of views expressed by all those who participated, the Board hopes that the Minister will now fill the information gaps identified by the Forum. The Board also hopes that the Minister will bring forward a set of proposals to assuage the concerns held by minority faiths involved in the provision of education on the effects new measures may have on their faith communities.
