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).

849 schools are included in the programme. These comprise 657 primary schools (336 urban/town schools and 321 rural primary schools) and 192 second level schools.
