Catch Up Curriculum Toolkit

Resources to Help Pupils Catch Up and Get Back on Track

Having missed up to six months of formal face to face teaching due to COVID-19, some pupils will have lost more learning time than others and fallen behind their peers.

To address this challenge and ensure that pupils recover from this sustained period of interrupted learning, we have developed a package of resources to include webinars (accompanied by train the trainer slides) and downloadable resources.

Following the conclusion of the highly regarded webinar series delivered by Dylan Wiliam, Shirley Clarke, Barry Hymer and Harry Fletcher-Wood, our remaining webinars, created by our own internal experts, have been recorded for purchase after the event. They provide ideas and guidance on how to help fill the gaps in pupils’ learning in Maths and English.

Recorded Webinars and Train the Trainer Slides

Models and images have been proven to support pupils in developing a secure conceptual understanding. This is more important now than ever before, so where can we find high quality resources to support teaching and learning in maths?
