Proven intervention and catch-up

Get teaching and learning back on track

From reading intervention to maths recovery programmes, we’re here to support you and your students with free and paid-for resources, following the recent disruptions, to help get your teaching and learning back on track.

Applying proven intervention methods and incorporating the latest research evidence into effective classroom practice helps to ensure Oxford catch-up and intervention programmes achieve extremely high success rates.

Materials are highly engaging to ensure struggling pupils are motivated, with online professional development available to increase the impact.

You can help ensure your school has the support it needs to make up for lost teaching time by accessing the UK Government’s one-off catch-up premium of £80 per pupil for the 2020-21 academic year. All schools in England have the flexibility to spend the funding in the best way for them, in line with the guidance on curriculum expectations.
