Targeting Transition to Secondary School

SP Tutors is working in conjunction with schools and the National Tutoring Programme to offer tuition in the summer holidays to pupils who have been disproportionately disadvantaged by Covid-19 and school closures. High quality tuition from SP Tutors adds capacity to schools and staff, easing the burden on schools and supporting schools to help target those pupils who need it most.

Give incoming Year 7s the best start by combining summer school fun with targeted tuition.

Combine summer school funding with NTP subsidised tuition to offer pupils a week in school that will give them the best possible start to their secondary school journey. 

Our Tutors:

Our tutors are trained in evidence-informed strategies that align with guidance from the Education Endowment Federation (EEF), that include:

Add capacity to your school staff with one of our tutors over the summer holidays – evidence suggests pupils are less affected by meeting new teachers but are positively impacted by familiarising themselves with routines and surroundings.

Pupil benefits: 

  • Gain confidence by meeting classmates and becoming familiar with new surroundings 
  • Significantly boost progress – evidence shows just 15 hours of small group tuition can boost progress by 4 months 
  • Manage anxiety levels in advance of the return to school in September  
  • Positively impact pupil and parent wellbeing 

School benefits: 

  • Access NTP subsidies alongside Summer School funding for the most cost effective provision
  • Using tutors adds capacity and eases the burden on existing staff and school resources 
  • Positive effect on school/community relationships – keeping children occupied during summer holidays with productive activities
  • Pupils join in September more confident, comfortable in new surroundings and ready to learn 

“ We are so pleased we opted to set up our tuition through SP tutors. SP were always fast and flexible and their professional and personal response mean that we already feel we know the central team!”
