Targeted Intervention

A cost-effective framework for targeted intervention that drives school improvement

Tools such as 4Matrix, SISRA, FFT and Alps identify groups of students in need of targeted intervention. We take over where these tools leave off, providing your school with:

  • Evidence of school-wide strategies – for example to OFSTED
  • 30-day money-back guarantee T&Cs here
  • Proven impact on GCSE grades (by FFT), especially for low prior-attainment pupils
  • Integrated award-winning content
  • A fully supported 13-week staff-certification process

Example three-year plan

Our framework helps you create a three-year strategic plan. The process will help you prioritise those student groups most in need of help and identify which colleagues you need to support you in driving effective targeted intervention across the school. This will encourage you to evidence a more structured approach to targeted intervention.

  • Progress 8 Subject groups
  • Y7 under 100 and MidYIS/CAT Baseline groups

The Newark Academy

‘We’ve set up an “Intervention Group” on SAM Learning for Year 11 students. This allows us to closely monitor those students who are at risk of not performing to their fullest potential. Teachers can set speci c tasks for them too, so now, rather than just for revision, we’re seeing students logging on to complete speci c and tailored tasks.’ – Katie Vause, Assistant Principal, The Newark Academy
