SP Tutors (Schools Partnership Tutors) was established to enable schools to work together in collaboration to make the most effective use of Government funding of tutoring for disadvantaged pupils.
SP Tutors (Schools Partnership Tutors) is a new organisation, based in Haverhill Suffolk, established for schools to work together in partnership to make the most effective use possible of tutoring for disadvantaged pupils. Founded by Unity Schools Partnership, we have an excellent educational and local knowledge base, supported by experienced educationalists in our area. We also have regional hubs in Norwich and Peterborough, enabling us to provide local support to a wider area.
Our working alliance with Unity Schools Partnership and the two Research Schools (Norwich and Unity) gives us access to leading experts in Pupil Premium and educational research. We have worked in collaboration with the research schools to develop evidence-informed tutor training which has seen the advent of our comprehensive TutorKnowHow training app. We are proud to work along side these organisations who add quality experience and evidence to everything we do.
“Using SP Tutors has allowed us to support some of our most vulnerable pupils. It has allowed us to tap in to the government’s tutor funding so that we can make our budget go further. The team have always been on hand to answer my questions and support with the process of setting up the blocks and sessions. We are already seeing the impact of tutoring and its only been a few weeks. The pupils are engaged and confident in the sessions.”
Disadvantaged pupils are not less able; they have fewer opportunities to access the resources and support they need to make the progress in school they would otherwise be able to make.
With the advent of the National Tutoring Programme, we want to ensure our pupils receive the very best catch-up education from the very best tutors that are well-prepared, evidence-informed, supported and committed.
SP Tutors aims to ensure that the East of England benefits from its fair share of the funding offered by the government for catch-up for disadvantaged pupils.
