Rapid Catch Up - Phonics

Rapid Catch Up - Phonics


For children that need that extra bit of support we have invested in the Rapid Catch-Up programme which helps close the gaps for children in the spring term of year 2 and above. Any child identified as not meeting Age Related Expectations in Reading is assessed on the Little Wandle Rapid Catch-Up Assessment and entered onto the programme if needed.


This involves group and 1:1 sessions to close the gaps in their grapheme knowledge and support them in meeting the expected standard for their year group.


Any child with a SEND, who would struggle with cognitive overload from the pace of the Rapid Catch-Up programme, is assessed on the SEND assessment and the best SEND pathway and planning is selected for them accordingly.
