“Many thanks to Families First for organising such a huge event and in particular to Ann King whose commitment to recognising and celebrating excellence in the public sector is to be highly applauded.

Staff, parents, governors and friends celebrated the award at the ceremony.

“Finally, thanks to all those people who voted for us and for treasuring Seaview IPS as a community school for all pupils in the locality.”

The school made history last year when it became the first Catholic primary in Northern Ireland to change to integrated status.

The move was approved by the Department of Education after being backed by 95 percent of parents.
