This year, we are continuing to test and learn about same day intervention and models for this and extending this wider across the region.

SDI has had an amazing effect on our progress and attainment here at Parklands. Along with our times tables and mental maths work, it has been the single impact.
Mr Sharp has found the whole process of developing / delivering this project hugely beneficial and has approached the teaching of SDI with an analytical mind set.
I cannot stress enough the positive impact SDI has had on teachers who are now enjoying teaching Maths for the first time and the children who are so enthusiastic and engaged in every lesson.
The main input begins at 9:20am and lasts for 40 minutes. This is based on the ‘teach-practise’ model, where basic and age related skills are demonstrated by the teacher before being completed by the children. This work is differentiated at Bronze (basic) and Silver (ARE), and each of these are modelled to the class. During this 40 minutes, the children self-assess using their assessment fans to indicate where support is needed. This allows the teacher to identify those who are ‘red and amber’ (not confident and who are yet to meet ARE).
After this session, the class go to assembly (led by SLT) with the Teaching Assistant, while the teacher marks the morning’s work. This identifies the groups for the SDI, and lasts for approximately 15 minutes.
During the same day intervention, pupils who fully achieved the age related expectation are given related tasks to further embed their understanding. Those that need extra support will work with the class teacher in a guided group, and can also be supported by the Teaching Assistant. This lasts for approximately 20 minutes. During their independent tasks, children who are ‘green’ are able to Fast-Track by self marking their work in order to move on to the deeper learning tasks (Gold). At the end of the session, children self assess their confidence against the success criteria and the academy learning model by placing their books in red, amber or green boxes.
