Funding of Grant-maintained integrated schools

Grant Maintained Integrated (GMI) schools are funded directly by the Department of Education under the arrangements set out in the Common Funding Scheme for the Local Management of Schools.

About grant-maintained integrated schools

Grant-Maintained Integrated (GMI) schools seek to add value to the education process by inviting Protestants and Catholics to come together with other traditions in order to improve their understanding of one another, their own cultures, religions and values.

GMI schools are managed by Boards of Governors, which consist of persons appointed in line with each school’s scheme of management (usually trustees or foundation governors) along with representatives of parents, teachers and, members appointed by the Department.

The Board of Governors of a GMI school is the employing authority, and, as such, is responsible for the employment of all staff (both teaching and non-teaching) in its school.
