It sets out new targets to further improve literacy and numeracy, school completion rates and progression to further and higher education.

The new DEIS school support programme will be implemented from September 2017.
The schools listed as well as the ones already in the programme will receive additional supports like NEPS provision, priority professional development provision resource teaching and book rental schemes amongst others.
