The Department of Education has identified the 80 schools to be included in the new programme for tackling educational disadvantage.

The schools will join the Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools (DEIS) scheme next September, while 30 schools already in the scheme will be provided with additional resources.

Schools in DEIS are awarded more resources, including extra teachers, than  others.

The 80 schools are deemed to have a higher level of disadvantage than many of the 826 schools already in the scheme

All existing DEIS schools will remain in the scheme for now, but following  a review of the new arrangements  for both identifying participating schools and for allocating resources,  at the end of the 2017/18 year,  some may be at risk of being dropped.

As well as including more schools, features  of the new DEIS will include mandatory book rental schemes in participating schools,  access to more educational  psychologists, and at second level, guidance counsellors.

Key aims of the new DEIS are improvement in literacy, numeracy and school completion rates and more progression to further and higher education.

Below , in four tables, are the names of the 110 new, or upgraded,  DEIS schools:
