Catch Up® Literacyeracy: Evaluation report and executive summary

Catch Up Literacyeracy is a structured one-to-one literacy intervention for pupils between the ages of 6 and 14 who are struggling to learn to read. It teaches pupils to blend phonemes, segment phonemes, and memorize particular words so they can be understood without needing to use phonics strategies to decode them. The intervention matches books to pupils according to their reading ability, which pupils then read to a teaching assistant, so is intended to also support the development of their comprehension skills.
