Yorkshire & The Humber Maths Hub - Same Day Intervention

Same Day Intervention: extending reach and embedding impact

The Same Day Intervention (SDI) programme is targeted at primary teachers and provides a systematic approach to mathematics teaching.

The aims of the project are to improve the outcomes for even more children in regards to mathematics. By engaging with the project, you will have the opportunity to have a huge impact on children’s attitudes towards mathematics, and improve attainment in mathematics. SDI involves adapting your lesson structure to the following:

  • Whole class input (ping-pong style teaching – I do, you do – high quality modelling)
  • Differentiation (through support, use of manipulatives and questioning)
  • Diagnostic task (5-6 questions at ARE)
  • Progress pit-stop (marking time to assess and group pupils)
  • Same day intervention (immediate intervention or challenging practice for pupils)
  • Self assessment (reflection time given to pupils)

To see this model in action, please watch our videos below.

In addition to this programme, Yorkshire & the Humber Maths Hub will be hosting Open Classroom Events in which SDI will be showcased across the region. To book your free place at one of these events, please follow the links opposite.

Same Day Intervention Reviews

  • Head Teacher Review - Parklands Primary School

    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.


  • Newton Hill Community School

    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.
