Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium

School-Led Tutoring is part of the National Tutoring Programme (NTP).  Eligible state-funded schools will receive a ring-fenced grant to source their own tutoring provision for disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils who have missed the most education due to COVID-19

Disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in significant missed education by pupils. Disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils have been particularly impacted.

Tutoring is one of the most effective tools for helping pupils recover lost education and many pupils have already benefited this year from the NTP. The Government is continuing to offer schools a new expanded tutoring offer from the start of academic year 2022/23.

Schools can now access three tutoring routes as part of the National Tutoring Programme:

  • Route 1: Tuition Partners
  • Route 2: Academic Mentors
  • Route 3: School-Led Tutoring

This year our federation was allocated just over £1000.  The federation identified pupils who would benefit from additional funding but as there were so many, resources rather than tutoring were provided to help support the pupils.
