Revision & Intervention

Intervention is an extra support provided to students outside of the regular classroom setting, in order to assist them to attain their full potential.

As part of our on-going commitment to raising student attainment, we are continuing to offer the opportunity for Year 11 students to attend extra learning sessions, for a selection of subjects, using a variety of methods, including: 1:1 tuition in Maths and English; small group targeted after school intervention Small Group Targeted Intervention; and remote revision sessions. Evidence from the Education Endowment Foundation indicates that, on average, students make two additional months' progress per year from extended school sessions and in particular through the targeted use of after school programmes.

1:1 Tuition in English and Maths

We have employed a team of English and maths tutors to deliver intensive individual or small group support, in addition to their timetabled English and maths lessons. This is to aid the life chances and opportunities for students, in the next steps of their education, through attaining the grades they need in these crucial subjects. We regularly monitor and evaluate the attainment of students and where necessary they may be selected for this intervention for a specific period of time. This is reviewed continually and throughout the year a wide range of students will be given the opportunity to access this support.

Remote Revision Sessions

Where we would usually offer class-sized revision sessions to our Year 11 students, due to the unprecedented circumstances we have found ourselves in this year, we have decided that these extra after school sessions will be delivered remotely, via video tutorials, using our Teams programme. As from Monday 2nd November, we will be offering extra support sessions in the subjects listed on the table and would expect students to access all of the English, maths and science sessions and as many of the others as they can/have been directed to. By conducting the revision sessions in this way, we hope to offer more flexibility in students being able to access them. We have created this handy guide to help students can access Teams.

A series of documents have been created to help Resilience and Independence in Learning at NDA.
