Which secondary pupils do schools tend to place?
Usually our pupils from secondary school will be:
Awaiting a move from your school to a special school and needing support whilst a new school place is found.
Unable to manage their behaviour in your school.
A looked after child requiring extra catch-up tuition in addition to their normal school day.
Moving to home schooling and you have agreed a few hours tuition contribution to the parents or carers.
How many hours per week do we need to book?
At KS3 and for pupils out of the classroom entirely, schools tend to book five to seven and a half hours of tuition per week. At KS4 six to twelve hours per week is typical, depending on the number of GCSEs the pupil is taking.
For looked after children needing extra catch-up tuition, in addition to the normal school day, it varies from one to six hours per week.
Where does the tuition take place?
Depending on the needs of the pupil(s)', tuition usually takes place either in the home, local library or online. Due to the current pandemic, most of our sessions are online. We do however offer outreach staff delivering a small number of Covid safe home appointments for your most vulnerable pupils.
How is it funded?
The pupil stays on your school roll and funding tends to be sourced from the pupil premium or higher needs funding available to the child. We then invoice your school accounts department on a monthly basis.
How much does it cost?
Our hourly rate for a fully qualified teacher is
£55 an hour plus VAT. This includes a whole wrap around service of daily attendance rung through to your attendance officer, report writing and progress updates, all additional telephone calls with parents, social workers and school staff, lesson preparation time, resources and travel time.
What subjects do you offer?
We offer English and Maths as standard. Depending on the interests of the pupil(s)', we often add, English Literature, Science Triology, Art or History. We match our teaching to the examining board your school uses. We also match up to your school's holiday and term time.
We also offer English and Maths Functional Skills to level 2. As a registered centre, we are able to enter pupils on your behalf if required and we offer remote invigilation so that your pupils can sit these exams at home.
