My school has pupils who definitely need some tutoring but the percentage of them who are ‘disadvantaged’ (e.g. Pupil Premium) is quite low; is this a problem? It might be, yet we will try to be flexible. In line with our goals as a charity, we request that 75% of the cohort either receive Pupil Premium, are Cared for Children, or are in Alternative Provision or at risk of exclusion. We can be more flexible with this requirement for schools primarily serving low-income communities. We respect the fact that teachers in school are best placed to decide which pupils both need tutoring AND will engage positively with our tutors. We know that the impact of the pandemic means that some pupils who don’t ‘tick a particular disadvantage box’ still really need a tutor. Please talk to us about which pupils you want to have a tutor and we’ll take it from there.
