The Education and Libraries (NI) Order 1986 (Articles 5 and 6) outlines the duty of the Education and Library Boards to secure efficient and sufficient provision of primary and secondary education within the Board area to meet the needs of all pupils.
In September 2011, the Education Minister commissioned the Board, working in close conjunction with CCMS and other school sectors, to commence a process of collective, strategic planning for area provision.
The North Eastern Education and Library Board
has, since its inception in 1972, remained committed to excellence in
the delivery of education so that every pupil can realise their
potential and contribute to a caring, inclusive and progressive society.
In striving to realise this aspiration, the Board has aimed to ensure that every pupil has:
- access to a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunities to realise his or her potential;
- an education in which the learning outcomes are appropriate to their needs;
- access to quality teaching delivered in a caring and supportive environment;
- education delivered in modern, well-resourced facilities, suitable for the delivery of education in the twenty-first century.
