Tuition Grant


These reports outline how our school is planning to spend the Tuition Grant allocation. They outline the nature of support provided and the expected outcomes from this support.

The Tuition Grant:

School-led tutoring is part of the National Tutoring Programme (NTP) in 2021-2022. State-funded schools will receive a ring-fenced grant to source their own tutoring provision for disadvantaged and vulnerable children who have missed the most education due to COVID-19. Disruptions due to COVID-19 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 benefitted this year from the NTP. The government is offering schools a new, expanded tutoring offer from the start of the academic year 2021-2022.
