Literacy Catch Up
Catch-Up is a Literacy intervention which aims to boost pupils’ reading attainment and enable them to achieve grade-level competency.
Pupils are selected based on data which gives us an insight into individual reading ages in comparison to a pupils’ chronological age. In order to support pupils and bridge gaps in their knowledge pupils are invited to take part in a 6 week programme.
Pupils are extracted from two lessons a fortnight, not including Maths, English or Science. During these sessions, they will be in groups of no more than six pupils and will explore a wide range of fiction and non-fiction reading material. The programme is designed to challenge pupils as well as develop their interest in reading. It will also allow pupils to familiarise themselves with, and improve upon their performance, the Personalised Assessment style questions.
From the success of previous programmes, we are confident that improving Literacy skills will help pupils across all areas of the curriculum.
