Children are grouped in various ways throughout the school day according to ability or for other reasons, and for different curriculum areas. On occasion, children may spend time with other classes who are working at levels more appropriate for an individual child. Teachers use regular assessments and analysis of assessment data to provide intervention groups for children who require additional support or stretch in different subject areas.
