This is a programme available to state (that means maintained and Academy) schools. Your child’s school is the first point of contact for any information about how they are using this programme and what support your child might receive through it. The academic year 2023/24 is the fourth and final year of the National Tutoring Programme.

For children/young people with SEND, if it becomes clear that they will require educational provision which goes beyond what the setting can provide from within its current resources (or through the additional funding the school has been provided with) then it may be necessary to use the Children and Families Act 2014 process to secure additional support. This could include for example, requesting an EHC needs assessment if your child is currently receiving SEN Support, or by seeking changes to an EHC plan which no longer meets need.
