School Led Tutoring

School Led Tutoring and the National Tutoring Programme


The term ‘school led tutoring’ (as introduced by the Department for Education in 2021) refers specifically to one of three current routes of the National Tutoring Programme (NTP), whereby eligible schools in England automatically receive additional funding to spend on tuition.

The National Tutoring Programme is a government initiative launched in 2020 to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on the pupils whose learning has been most affected.


The three pillars are:

  • School Led Tutoring: Ring-fenced funding given directly to schools to spend on tutoring delivered by members of a school’s own personnel, either currently employed or specifically engaged for this purpose, including retired, returning or supply teachers, support staff, and qualified teachers
  • Academic Mentors: Additional school staff, whose salary is subsidised by the government, placed in school to deliver small group tutoring sessions.
  • Tuition Partners: Subsidised tuition available to schools from a select list of Department for Education (DfE) approved providers, including Third Space Learning, which we use here at Crawshawbooth Primary School.
