One to One tuition Ring fenced funding ( Grant 1.5) To secure improved pupil progress in English and Maths Approach adopted in the Making Good Progress pilot LA receives funding for specific numbers of pupils in KS3 and KS4 ( national challenge only)
One to One tuition Key points:- 1.Cost for 10 hrs tuition + 2 hours planning and liaison for up to 3.5% of the pupil cohort in KS2, 3 and in KS4 (National Challenge only) 2.Central funding to support LAs in their strategic role 3.Payment to school per pupil tutored 4.Tutors must be qualified teachers 5.Preferably takes place outside school hours
One to One tuition Tuition to be offered to those pupils who:- Entered the key stage behind the expected level Are not on track to reach national expectations at the end of the key stage Are looked after and would benefit from this type of intervention
One to one tuition is not a replacement for: - existing intervention strategies - quality first teaching Tuition may not be the most appropriate intervention even if a pupil meets the criteria. Each case needs to be judged on the individual pupil, the specific targets that need to be addressed and the available intervention strategies (including tuition). Provision of tuition does not detract from the overriding need to ensure quality first teaching is the key driver to improving standards.
