DEIS: Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools

Description

Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools (DEIS) the Action Plan for Educational Inclusion, was launched in May 2005 and remains the Department of Education and Skills policy instrument to address educational disadvantage. The action plan focuses on addressing and prioritising the educational needs of children and young people from disadvantaged communities, from pre-school through second-level education (3 to 18 years).

DEIS provides for a standardised system for identifying levels of disadvantage and an integrated School Support Programme (SSP).

836 schools are included in the programme in the 2016/17 school year. These comprise 646 primary schools (330 urban/town schools and 316 rural primary schools) and 190 second level schools.
