Academic Interventions

Interventions are targeted support sessions, tailored to support students in order to help them to achieve or exceed their target grades and/ or to help them with emotional or social support to be more confident and happier at school.

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

Interventions span all year groups and abilities and are usually guided by current data and student progress.

Academic Interventions on offer may include:

  • Holiday and Saturday Interventions sessions: Across all subjects for Years 10 and 11.
  • Online interventions:   Using either our own internal staff or external tuition agencies.  
  • 1:1 / small group tuition:  In key subjects and mainly take place during the school day.
  • Links with external establishments such as PET X; Tailored tuition by subject specialists for groups of targeted students to support with exam preparation. 
  • Literacy and Numeracy Provision for students who need additional support at KS3:  This includes targeted withdrawals, additional support using online platforms and out-of-hours interventions. 
  • Subject Specific Academic Mentoring:  Supporting students in small groups in specific subjects.
  • Pastoral Mentoring and Motivational Workshops:  Working with students to support them with time management, organisational skills, motivation, and target setting.
  • Walking Talking Mocks:  Providing students with guidance on exams and subject knowledge as they approach their final exams.

Students will hear about interventions via the school website, letters home and school assemblies and it is advised that if a child is required to participate in a school intervention that they make the most of the opportunity.

Our Pupil Premium page sets out specifically how we use our dedicated funding to raise aspirations.
