Instantly identify knowledge gaps

Individual Intervention Reports highlight areas of weakness for a specific learner and provide links to relevant intervention resources to address their needs.

Grouped Intervention Reports identify learners with knowledge gaps and group them according to strand/learning area, providing links to the relevant intervention resources. Each child's raw score is provided alongside the grouping to allow for teacher judgement. 

Progress Quiz Reports* show how learners are finding certain strands after your interventions and enable you to track their progress during their period of intervention.

*For Shine Interventions ART and Shine Interventions AMT only

What teachers are saying...

  • The TAs reported that the biggest thing is seeing the children suddenly just ‘get it’. There’s nothing that beats being in a lesson and watching a child suddenly being able to do something they couldn’t do before.
    Acting Headteacher
    St Barnabas’ CE First and Middle School
  • Shine has reduced workload by providing high quality interventions... The ‘so what next’ element is excellent: support and resources to move attainment forward and close gaps.
    Deputy CEO
    Diocese Sheffield Academies Trust (DSAT)
  • Shine helps us to really target interventions afterwards without it taking a lot of our time to analyse the data.
    Headteacher
    St Mary and St Margaret’s C of E Primary
  • I would definitely recommend Shine Interventions to other schools – we have tried a lot of different reading interventions and although we had resources for our SEND children, we had struggled to find good quality interventions for children assessed as ‘working towards the expected standard’. The Shine resources made our LSAs a lot more confident and they felt really supported by the materials.
    Katherine Carr, English Subject Leader
    The Oaks Community Primary School
  • All teachers commented positively on the intervention resources being what they needed and children found the interventions engaging... We would 100% recommend Shine to other schools.
    Matt Doody, Deputy Headteacher
    Meridian Community Primary School
