The overarching vision for ESSPIN was of better learning for more children, providing the foundations for improved quality of life for them and their families. In line with this, the DFID Business Case (BC) for ESSPIN’s extension projected that, by the end of the programme, 11,308 schools will be participating in the programme with 3.3 million children benefiting. An additional 134,000 vulnerable children in Northern Nigeria will be benefiting. 6,300 schools will meet the quality standard benchmark, representing 37% of all public primary and junior secondary schools, and 700 schools will meet an advanced quality standard. In addition, support to 32,000 existing students and a further 23,000 in Islamic and nomadic schools will be deepened. These results will be achieved and sustained through continued government investment in school reform, with government contributions expected to reach 70% of the direct costs of school improvement.
