From time to time, most children require an intervention of some kind to support their learning. On many occasions, these brief interventions are delivered in short sessions designed to "close the gap" in the children's learning. Sometimes, children may require more focussed interventions for a longer time to help them catch up. Such interventions are closely monitored by teaching staff (and the SENDCo if necessary) and the impact of these on their learning tracked.
