An Evaluation of the Promoting Improvement in English and Mathematics (PIEM) Project

Date published: 10 April 2017

Type: Surveys / Evaluations
Organisational phase: Post-primary

This report contains three main sections; a high-level summary followed by two, more detailed, annexes, one for English and one for mathematics.


The report is based on the development work undertaken in 19 schools in either English or mathematics over a two-year period and the impact this work has had on raising the standards achieved by the pupils in these subjects and, importantly, in ‘closing the gap’ between the pupils who were entitled to free school meals (FSME) and their peers.
