Catch Up® is a not-for-profit charity working to address literacy and numeracy difficulties that contribute to underachievement. We offer two structured one-to-one interventions, Catch Up® Literacy and Catch Up® Numeracy, proven to significantly improve the achievement of learners who find literacy or numeracy difficult.
Sometimes, trainees ask us what they should do about pupils they are thinking about starting on Catch Up® Literacy, who are already good at phonics. They anticipate that these pupils will probably score well on Assessment 2: Sight word knowledge, and so will be assigned a higher Catch Up® starting level.
On Friday 12th June, over 100 span class="nb"Catch Upsup®/sup/span trustees, trainers, supporters and friends had afternoon tea in the very elegant and historical surroundings of the Cholmondeley (pronounced Chummley) Room and Terrace in the House of Lords.
We were the guests of Baroness Andrews OBE and we were celebrating 15 successful years of span class="nb"Catch Upsup®/sup/span and looking forward to exciting future developments.
Baroness Andrews is well known for her dedicated work in the field of education. She was founder and Director of Education Extra – the national charity for out-of-school learning and activities.
