When you believe pupils are behind where they should be, our Ready to Progress intervention programme will help you to intervene quickly and effectively to secure pupils’ understanding.
Developed in response to Covid-19, the programme will help to close the attainment gap so that all pupils can succeed in maths, despite any previous shortfalls in their learning. The adult-led interventions are designed to be used by teachers or TAs and are ideal if you are following the school-led tutoring scheme.
Aligned with EEF best practice principles and the DfE Ready to Progress criteria, the resources give you confidence that teachers can quickly and effectively address setbacks. As a fully flexible programme, you can use the interventions in short bursts or as part of long-term learning.
The Ready to Progress intervention programme is designed by teachers and gives you over 140 pupil-facing videos with an activity bank and intervention guidance support. The content is matched to the Ready to Progress criteria within the strands:
The videos are the starting point for each area of learning within the criteria - providing a visual demonstration of the concept, using concrete resources.
Each video includes an example intervention activity, modelling the key learning and providing a scaffold for guided practice.
Pupils then work through the rest of the supporting activities across multiple intervention sessions, building fluency in understanding and application.
Full support is provided on how to deliver the interventions, with an introductory session on our MyMastery platform, then targeted guidance within each unit.
Each pupil-facing video is around 5 or 6 minutes in length and is intended to be watched by the adult and pupil together, modelling the use of representations and language. Pause points are provided for discussion and exploration.
The accompanying activities are supplied as editable slide decks with easy-to-use guidance for the adult leading the session, including:
The activities offer flexibility to fit your school's intervention slots (whether they're 15-minutes or 45-minutes) and to fit the needs of each pupil. Confident pupils may spend fewer sessions on a particular area, whereas others may need multiple sessions to understand and embed key learning.
A diagnostic placement quiz informs the intervention programme route.

As school life returns to something nearer normal, many schools will use teaching assistants to lead interventions that will help with learning recovery.
In this training, Rob Webster, Associate Professor at UCL Institute of Education, explores the power and potential of TA-led interventions, and the common traps that schools need to avoid in order to ensure their learning recovery programme is a success.
