Intervention is action planned to improve the progress of targeted pupils who have been identified as underachieving and who are at risk of not fulfilling their potential. Intervention implies that these pupils will receive some additional or different provision at certain times, but effective intervention requires that the needs of these pupils are also met through tailored teaching in main lessons. The top priority for most schools is to provide intervention for a target group who:

    • are below the level expected for their age
    • have the potential to reach the expected level
This document provides guidance on actions to take if any individual pupil or group of pupils are not making the expected progress.
