The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) helps support disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils from year 1 to year 11 to catch-up on missed education due to coronavirus (COVID-19).

School-led tutoring is one route of the NTP. State-funded schools and academy trusts, with pupils eligible for pupil premium, receive a ring-fenced grant to source their own tutoring provision to support catch-up.

This guidance is for school leaders, school staff and governing bodies in eligible schools and academy trusts, as well as local authorities.

It includes information on:

  • eligibility
  • what the funding can be spent on
  • funding allocations
  • subsidies and school contributions
  • payment schedules
  • data requirements
  • overpayments
  • specific conditions for local authorities

The school-led tutoring tracker and calculator tool has been designed to help schools keep track of the data they need throughout the academic year, so they have the information to hand to complete the school-led tutoring: year-end statement.

This tracker and calculator tool is voluntary and schools are not obligated to use it.

You can read more about how to access, plan and deliver school-led tutoring.
