What's the National Tutoring Programme?
The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) for 5 to 16-year-olds provides targeted support for disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils in state-funded schools who need the most help.
While the NTP was established to help pupils catch up on learning lost during the pandemic, the focus is now on the attainment gap more generally. Schools should prioritise pupils that are eligible for the pupil premium to receive tutoring but can decide to offer it to others.
Your school can offer tutoring through different routes, which your leaders are free to decide on according to pupils' needs. They can use 1 or a combination of more than 1.
The NTP offers 3 routes for tutoring
Academic mentors are employed to work full-time, in-house to provide intensive support to pupils who
