17 Monitoring Effectiveness of -Templates 17

18 A checklist for a quality intervention Management in school Is care taken that the intervention is not used as a substitute for properly differentiated quality first teaching (QFT) (Wave 1)? Do the effective features of the intervention feed back into QFT, so that QFT continually improves? Are the right children targeted, identified through data and careful tracking of progress? Are there clear entry and exit criteria for the intervention? Is regular review of children s progress incorporated as an intrinsic part of the programme? Are children involved, so that they understand the purpose and intended outcomes of the intervention? Are parents/carers involved, both in the decision that their child will take part and in knowing how they can support at home what the child is learning through the intervention? Is the intervention time limited? Has there been good training for the person delivering the intervention? Is there ongoing support and training for the person delivering the intervention? Is the quality of the teaching monitored regularly? Has there been good training for the class teacher involved? Is there joint planning between the class teacher and the person delivering the intervention? Does the class teacher know what the child is learning and how to support this in everyday teaching? Do the class teacher and person delivering the intervention have time to meet to review children s progress? Is the impact of the intervention on the group of children who have received it evaluated systematically using measures of progress both short term (at the end of the intervention), and long term by monitoring outcomes in National Curriculum tests, optional tests, etc.? Is the use of the intervention reassessed regularly in the light of this evaluation, to identify whether it should continue to be run? Is the use of the intervention reassessed regularly in the light of data on the profile of need in the school? Pedagogy Does the intervention programme include strategies to enable children to identify their own learning targets and to assess their own progress? Does it help them become independent learners? 18
