11th December 2023 - Season's greetings
As we reach the end of 2023 and take time to reflect upon the year, we recognise that it has been a challenging one for many of us, for many reasons.
However, we have welcomed many new trainees to deliver the Catch Up® interventions and been pleased to have past trainees return to delivery as well. As schools work tirelessly on closing the attainment gap, in a very difficult time, we know that the Catch Up® interventions can support progress, and with your help the word is spreading.
Training is consistently rated as good or better, with the majority of trainees rating it as very good or excellent.
- This was a great course. The resources and planning all help to keep a structure to the process which is really useful. Literacy trainee
- It was very informative and an effective way to know how to do assessments, what level pupils are so that we can help them from that level and boost their confidence. Numeracy trainee
- Loved it and feeling very motivated. Literacy trainee
- Thoroughly enjoyed the training and am looking forward to getting started and making a difference. Thank you. Numeracy trainee
The Catch Up®
Accredited Trainers and the admin staff work incredibly hard to ensure that your training experience is as good as it can be, and all are heartened by the feedback we regularly receive.
As we move into 2024, we are looking forward to reporting on our Early Years Project, based in London, and supported by an external grant provided by ‘The charity of Sir Richard Whittington (for which the Mercer’s Company is Corporate Trustee). The indications, so far, are looking promising, and we will share the outcomes with you once all the data has been collected and crunched!
A big thank you to all the schools, both children and staff, who have helped us with this one.
Our work delivering Catch Up®
Literacy to Carers has continued, and we would like to thank the Norfolk Virtual School for working so closely with us to enable us to support more carers and the children. We are keen to expand this work with other virtual schools and foster agencies, so please do get in touch if you would like to learn more.
We hope that 2024 continues to be a positive one for Catch Up®
and that we are able, with your support, to make the difference to as many struggling learners as possible.
We wish you a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable break.
With warmest wishes
The Catch Up®
