English Catch Up.
English Catch Up is a short-term intervention for children who have the lowest achievement in literacy learning in their first years at school. Children are taught individually by a specially trained teacher for 30 minutes each day for an average of 12-20 weeks. The goal is for children to become effective readers and writers able to work within an average range of classroom performance.
English Catch Up has a strong track record of preventing literacy failure for many children through early intervention. It is an important strand in our school’s strategy for ensuring that all children learn to read and write as early as is possible.
Our schools trained Reading Recovery teacher (Rachel Newman) delivers the programme and is involved in reading across the school along with overseeing BRP, PM Benchmarking and continued professional development of staff.
