This is a pilot study designed to test the feasibility of the approach using surveys and interviews.  We will also be testing the feasibility of collecting reading assessment data remotely using Zoom.  The findings from this study will inform the development of a larger scale randomised controlled trial designed to test the effectiveness of the Catch Up Literacy programme delivered in this way.
