Individual Tuition recommended as a highly effective use of Pupil Premium

The Education Endowment Foundation research on using the Pupil Premium to raise achievement has evidenced the effectiveness of one-to-one tuition and measured accelerated learning by 5 month’s additional progress. Our own research agrees, indicating that 1-2-1 tuition with Fleet Tutors raises attainment by a full NC level.

Services for Schools

Catch-up tuition one-to-one- at school or at home. For young people who have fallen behind or who have other challenges, individual tuition can be the most powerful intervention in terms of enabling academic catch up, improvements in confidence and more effective engagement in classroom learning.

Catch-up tuition- small groups. Likewise, small group, targeted intervention can make the difference to progress for students struggling in a mainstream classroom. Our subject specialist tutors have evidenced outcomes across the key stages and are up to date in National Curriculum delivery, Progress 8 and particularly the maths and English GCSEs.

For children needing personalised support during the primary-secondary transition, our specialist primary tutors are skilled in partnership working with receiving schools and delivering bespoke programmes, supporting below L4 children and enabling a smooth start to learning in year 7.

Exam Revision-small groups. Our personalised, small group exam revision classes, delivered at the school’s convenience in the run up to any examination series, can transform outcomes; differentiating for weaker students and accelerating stronger students.

Alternative Provision. Fleet Tutors AP Service is a full or part time education provision for those at risk of exclusion or unable to fully attend school. Our bespoke, personalised academic programmes are tailored to the social, emotional and academic needs of the young person and aim for reintegration or a smooth transition to further learning. AP for schools can be provided on site, or at a sourced, risk assessed venue.

Summer Schools. Fleet Tutors’ successful Summer School Programme can be tailored to the requirements of the individual school and targeted cohorts. Specific proposal available on request.
