Back in October 2020, we announced that Catch Up® had been awarded funding to explore the potential of our interventions in an Early Years setting.
The ‘Catch Up® Early Years Project’ is taking place over three years, and with project Year 1 fast coming to a close, we are now recruiting schools for project Year 2!
For project Year 2, we are looking to recruit up to 6 schools from Tower Hamlets and 6 schools from Islington, with 3 schools from each borough working with literacy/reading and 3 with numeracy/maths.
Participating in the Catch Up® Early Years Project will involve 3 designated staff being trained to deliver Catch Up® Literacy or Catch Up® Numeracy, then each school supporting 6 Reception-age pupils.
The costs of the training will be paid for by the project and the training will take place over 3 days in late September 2021. Schools will need to commit trained staff to providing at least 2 x 15-minute support sessions, per week, for each of the 6 pupils. This is a minimum of 3 hours of staff time per week to support the pupils, plus some preparation and follow-up time. There will also be some research feedback required.
