INTERVENTION CLASSES

YEAR 7 TO 12 BRITISH & AMERICAN CURRICULUM (INCLUDING YEAR 11 AND 12 RESITS)

Interventions are targeted support sessions, tailored to support students in order to help them to achieve or exceed their target grades or levels. They use effective strategies to plug gaps in students’ knowledge, understanding and skills, resulting in higher levels of attainment.

At SRS, we run a range of interventions at classroom, department and whole-school level which are sometimes aimed at a specific group of students who have been identified as being in need of support and sometimes open to all students.

Intervention classes/groups run after school daily from the beginning of each academic year.

IDENTIFICATION OF STUDENTS FOR THE INTERVENTION PROCESS

Interventions span all year groups and abilities and are strongly guided by current data and student progress:

  • Using student data on attainment and progress, as well as the wider intelligence gathered as a result of on-going assessment for learning, subject teachers analyse with precision the subject-specific gaps in students’ knowledge, understanding and skills.
  • Teachers prepare Individual Learning Plans (ILPs) for students, identifying the gaps and a clear plan of action of how to plug them. The ILPs highlight clear strategies of how to close the gaps, stipulate clear outcomes, and identify monitoring arrangements to track short-term progress against the stated outcomes.
  • Teachers have oversight of and manage the Individual Learning Plans (ILPs). These teachers will be working with targeted students, monitoring and tracking their short-term progress against subject-specific targets as stated above.
