What can make a difference for disadvantaged children?

This term staff and children at Paisley Primary School in Hull have begun using the Chatta approach.

Chatta Champion, Sam Parker, has been leading the implementation of the approach and making very good use of Chatta’s training, software and resources.

Assistant Headteacher Allison Heywod is delighted with the impact and when asked about the impact said “Our school started using CHATTA in autumn this year and in just one term the progress has been phenomenal! From baseline to autumn 2 all strands of Communication & Language and Literacy have seen a dramatic increase.”

This exciting news caught the eye of local MP, Emma Hardy, who is a member of the Education Select Committee and a strong advocate for developing oracy skills in schools. Emma has accepted an invitation to visit the school and will see the impact of Chatta for childern and families in her constituency.
