What are the first steps for my school to start tutoring?

SP Tutors are run by schools for schools, so we understand the demands of busy schools and central teams. We work hard to reduce administrative burdens and highlight how schools can maximise funding streams to get tutoring in front of pupils as quickly as possible.

Here are some helpful first steps to consider:

  1. Assign a Key Teacher to coordinate tutoring in school – they’ll should be organised, understand pupils’ needs, engage well with parents / carers and will benefit from additional time for the role.
  2. Consider where tutoring will take place: the same room each time helps.
  3. What will the tutoring timetable look like?
  4. Identify a Finance Lead to support the Key Teacher (ie someone who completes the Census or budgets), this will help with funding and contracts.
  5. Make sure class teachers are aware that they’ll be linking in with tutors for feedback and curriculum planning – they may benefit from some additional time for this.
