Student Intervention

A number of departments offered sessions during October half term. These sessions were run from the Foundation subjects, enabling students to focus on their option subjects rather than the core subjects for this holiday session.

The Raising Achievement Team co-ordinated the timetable and invited target students to each of the sessions to ensure that there were no clashes with departments trying to recruit the same students. The students invited were identified as students needing intervention in these subjects.
