Summer catch up programme delivered to approximately 150 students from 12 schools across the Trust.

“DDAT is a multi-academy trust of 28 schools located across Derby City and Derbyshire. During the Summer break 2020, DDAT worked with the Kip McGrath team based in Derby to set up a bespoke catch-up tutoring programme for targeted DDAT pupils across Derby and Derbyshire utilising the local centres but coordinated centrally by the team in Derby. The DDAT/Kip McGrath summer catch up programme was set up very quickly by the Derby team, with reporting mechanisms and quality assurance processes established to monitor effectiveness.  

As part of the COVID-19 catch-up, the project was extremely successful in terms of participation by pupils and outcomes. Some participating schools have requested to continue with the Kip McGrath tutoring for specific pupils as part of the wider programme of catch-up in the 2020/21 academic year and some parents and carers have also elected to continue with tutoring at their own expense due to the successful outcomes and ease of access.”
