10th December 2014 - What do you think of Catch Up®?

Catch Up Blog

As part of being accepted for support by the Social Business Trust, they asked you, our Catch Up® Community, to rate your experience with Catch Up® and tell them what you think of us. 221 of you kindly filled in the short survey and we were thrilled to read that, when asked to rate Catch Up® (1 - weakest; 10 - strongest), over 91% gave us 7 or above out of 10! Thank you very much to all those who contributed and rated us so highly. There were also many useful comments that we will be taking into account as we continue to develop our support for deliverers.

Here are some of your lovely comments to enjoy!

“I enjoyed the Catch Up course immensely, everything was explained concisely and I felt that I learnt a great deal from it. After delivering Catch Up sessions myself, I have realized the importance of various aspects of the intervention and have seen just how effective it is. The learners grow in confidence and become much more enthusiastic about reading. The whole process is very positive with the learners improving and enjoying each session, and as for me, I can't imagine another job giving this much job-satisfaction.”

“I have been really impressed with the improvement in the children that I have worked with, on both the Catch Up Literacy and Numeracy interventions. I found the training informative and well delivered and the follow-up visits to our school were extremely helpful.”

“I cannot fault the Catch Up Literacy programme. It is by far the most effective intervention programme for improving reading that I have used.”

“Some of the comments from the children are how Catch Up has helped them with their confidence, reading & understanding. The messages were overwhelming from parents too.”

“Our maths SATS results improved for the children involved in Catch Up in Year 6. It is proving successful lower down the school as well, with the vast majority of pupils who are on the scheme doing better than expected in their end of year assessments.”

“First course I have come away from both inspired and determined to make it happen....and it is!!”

“Delivering Catch Up Numeracy at my school this year has proved extremely successful, with end of year test results having outstanding scores. Age and number age gaps decreasing rapidly, with some above their age. Pupils full of confidence and feel they can continue to thrive and achieve. But, best of all, they now say they ENJOY maths. That is so rewarding.”

“Catch Up is an amazing intervention that can produce fantastic results for all children who participate in the full programme. I deliver Catch Up Literacy & Numeracy in school and thoroughly enjoy every session. It is well structured and easy to follow. The children will often chase me up the corridor to find out when they can work with me again. They love it.......and so do I! I have nothing but praise for this intervention.”
