School-led tutoring is one route of the National Tutoring Programme. In the 2021 to 2022 academic year, state-funded schools and academy trusts with pupils eligible for pupil premium received a grant for specifically sourcing their own tutoring provision to support catch-up.

This guidance is for school leaders, school staff and governing bodies in eligible schools and academy trusts, as well as local authorities.

It includes information on:

  • eligibility
  • what the funding can be spent on
  • funding allocations
  • subsidies and school contributions
  • payment schedules
  • data requirements
  • overpayments
  • specific conditions for local authorities

The school-led tutoring tracker and calculator tool has been designed to help schools keep track of the data they need throughout the academic year, so they have the information to hand to complete their school-led tutoring year-end statement. This tracker and calculator tool is voluntary and schools are not obligated to use it.

You can access more information about the National Tutoring Programme and view the National Tutoring Programme allocations for the 2022 to 2023 academic year to find out how much funding each institution has been allocated.
