Thank you to everyone who joined our lunchtime seminar in Birmingham last Tuesday, to hear about implementing and sustaining high-impact literacy and numeracy interventions.
Catch Up® Accredited Trainer, Debbie Rowan, led the seminar. Debbie delivers Catch Up® training to teachers and TAs every term in Birmingham, as well as running our new free follow-up sessions there. We have trained over 450 supporting adults to deliver Catch Up® in Birmingham since we set up our first Regional Training Centre there in 2014!
We welcomed back two local schools to talk about their experience of delivering and coordinating Catch Up® Literacy and Numeracy; Jayne Burrows from St Peter’s Catholic Primary School in Walsall, and Mel Fisher from Wheelers Lane Primary School in Birmingham.
St Peter’s now have 5 staff members delivering Catch Up®, who have worked with 30 pupils over the last 12 months. They explained that the sustained success of the intervention means the number of pupils being identified as needing the intervention is slowing down across the school.
Jayne presented data from a pupil on Catch Up® Literacy, who made 22 months’ progress in 6 months:
