Shared Education


In Straidbilly, we enjoyed a positive and healthy working partnership with Barnish Primary School in Ballyvoy for over 20 years. Our two schools were closely linked through cross-community initiatives including E.M.U. (Education for Mutual Understanding) and P.I.E.E Project (Primary Integration/ Enriching Education). Over the years the staff have worked together to develop schemes of work for Personal Development and Mutual Understanding and the World Around Us as well as sharing some resources and appointing a shared teacher.

Most recently, until the unfortunate closure of Barnish Primary we worked through the Shared Education Signature Project (SESP), providing meaningful experiences for our pupils by developing shared lessons and projects in PE, PDMU and Literacy and purchasing some shared PE and Literacy resources. The pupils  very much enjoyed working and playing with their friends in Barnish and the teachers valued the opportunities to speak with and work with the Barnish staff.

In 2021 we started a new Shared Education partnership with Armoy Primary and St Olcans, Armoy and we very much look forward to working with them more in the future.
