21st March 2016 - Catch Up® lunchtime seminar in South Wales!

Emma Coates

On a sunny day in South Wales, March 18th 2016 (Sports Relief Day, to be exact!), Llanhari Primary School opened its doors to members of the Catch Up® Community from across the region.

Mrs Emma Coates, Headteacher, hosted the first ever Catch Up® lunchtime seminar in South Wales!

The session was attended by both new and old ‘friends’ of the Catch Up® interventions and, following a delicious lunch, we were able to ‘catch up’ with some good practice from two Catch Up® Excellence Award-winning schools – Llanhari Primary School and Jenner Park Primary School, Barry.

Presentations were delivered which offered ideas around sustaining high quality provision and determining impact. As Emma pointed out, children in her school, “…. enjoy the Catch Up® one-to-one sessions, and make excellent progress.”

Jenner Park reminded us of how we’re “…doing something well and making a difference!”

Finally, we considered how any school could adopt the good practice, and how Catch Up®, the organisation, supports each and every school.

The seminar was a huge success and – to borrow a quote from one of our attendees – it was, “Great to re-visit and remind me of the good practice elements. Going back with lots of actions to do.”
