Literacy support

The OAT network is working with national charities including Catch Up and Text Now to improve levels of literacy and the enjoyment of reading in participating academies and associated primary schools. The aim of the Catch Up project is “to test and evaluate, within a rigorous and high quality research framework, the impact on underperforming Year 6/Year 7 pupils, of the Catch Up Literacy intervention, when it is delivered by trained teaching assistants, immediately prior to and for two terms after the pupils transfer to secondary school.”
