DEIS – Department of Education and Skills

DEIS status means that our school qualifies for a range of extra resources which help us to support all students on a daily basis.

DEIS schools benefit from;

  • a lower pupil teacher ratio than non-DEIS schools ensuring that our class sizes are smaller than average.
  • additional staffing resources aimed at Student Support outside of the classroom (eg. JCSP Co-ordinator, Home School Community Liaison Person, School Completion Co-ordinator). Such personnel provide a host of extra supports for students and parents on an ongoing basis.

Additional funding to provide services such as:

  • Breakfast Club
  • Lunchtime Activities
  • Hot Lunches
  • Homework Club
  • Student Support
