The term ‘Catch Up’ comes with a range of complexities. All students will have been impacted by COVID-19, however some have been impacted more than others.
In short, we are aiming to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on our young people, academically, socially, emotionally and culturally.
Academic progress is at the core of our Catch-Up strategy, to ensure that our learners are impacted as little as possible by COVID-19. We are trying to bridge the gap in learning but also allow students to ‘keep up’ with the new normal- facing periods of self-isolation and learning fatigue.
Furthermore, the impacts on students socially, emotionally and culturally cannot be disregarded. These will form part of our wider strategies, allowing us to support students entirely.
