The analysis of these formal assessments will allow subject teachers to target intervention where it is most needed over the course of the rest of the year. This intervention might result in group changes, intervention strategies or individual, aspirational targets. Any of these will be clearly communicated to parents by either subject leaders or Heads of House once assessment and moderation have taken place.
