Thank you to everyone who joined us at Tower Hamlets PDC last Friday, to hear about implementing and sustaining high-impact literacy and numeracy interventions.
The lunchtime seminar was led by one of our Catch Up® Accredited Trainers, Alison Haines, who delivers Catch Up® training to teachers and TAs every term at the Tower Hamlets PDC, where she also delivers our new free follow-up sessions.
We were delighted to hear from Interventions Teacher, Ruth Deer, and Teaching Assistant, Michelle Walker, from The Jenny Hammond Primary School in Waltham Forest, who talked about their experience using Catch Up® Literacy and Numeracy.
The Jenny Hammond Primary School are currently delivering Catch Up® Literacy to 7 pupils in years 3-6 and Catch Up® Numeracy to 10 pupils in years 2-5.
Ruth explained how they got set up for the interventions by selecting learners and making sure the resources they needed were in place for sessions, and then carrying out the Catch Up® assessments for learning, to establish the specific focus for the individual sessions.
She reported that pupils, staff and parents alike were very impressed with the impact of the interventions, and just some examples of pupil progress data she showed us included:
