A desire for tutoring to be a permanent part of school education

The National Tutoring programme should be a “permanent” feature of school education in England - Nadhim Zahawi has revealed writing for the Sunday Express. This will form part of the ‘Parent Pledge’ outlined in the recently released schools white paper that will require schools to inform parents of how they will address children falling behind in maths and English.

Further support measures to improve education catch-up announced this week include a doubling of the Recovery Premium funding for secondary schools from 2022/23 which could see an average secondary receiving £60,000 compared to £30,000 the previous year. A typical primary school will also receive nearly £7,000 extra.
