Cost-effective more able and talented programmes in primary schools.
Primary schools face real challenges when trying to deliver meaningful programmes to support more able pupils, a situation which is amplified further in small and rural schools.
School leaders need to find innovative, measurable and sustainable programmes which can stretch and challenge pupils, and challenge them to make more progress.
See how a small primary school in Bridlington has successfully used tute to support it’s learners over the past 3 years.
"Our more skilled children are as important as our SEN children and that's why we use Tute. The main benefit is increasing their self esteem"
Raising self esteem and giving opportunities to more able primary school children.
New Pasture Lane Primary School is a small (205 students on roll), but very successful, primary school in the seaside town of Bridlington in East Yorkshire. Many students enter the school as below national expectations, but all leave above national expectations and progress is above what is expected.
The school is successful because the senior leadership team recognise that self-esteem is a key component in ensuring pupil progress. They deploy Tute as a means of supporting this ambition as well as providing a differentiated learning experience which really engages the cohort.
Indeed, all of the pupils participating in Tute programmes have rated the teaching as excellent, and all would recommend Tute to other students.
Tute lessons are live online lessons delivered by qualified teachers in groups of up to 12 students.
45-minute, live lessons delivered by qualified teachers on webcam using the Tute online platform.
Up to 12 young people taught online in a group lesson.
Students communicate by voice (microphone on PC), live chat and using an interactive whiteboard.
The curriculum, lessons and scheme of learning are all agreed with the teacher/school in advance.

New Pasture Lane used Tute to provide numeracy sessions for More Able mathematicians in Year 3, Year 4 and 6 that were both enriching and stretching. The sessions use elements of the current school Learning programmes and build upon them.
After multiple successful cycles of learning programmes, the Tute cohort has expanded significantly, introducing more students from KS2 and, for the first time KS1 later this year.
Student feedback has been highly successful: listen to pupil feedback on the Rockin’ Radio interviews held with pupils about Tute.
Real teachers, real engagement.
Students who are not engaged or stretched by their lessons in the classroom – and those who must learn away from the classroom, may not make sufficient progress with traditional online resources.
Tute is different. Our faculty of qualified, experienced teachers deliver high quality lessons, live online via the innovative Tute Learning Cloud platform.
They work closely with your teachers to plan the
additional support that will be right for the learning needs of each student.
Students love learning on Tute.
"Tute gives me opportunities to get ahead and go the extra mile."
"It’s an online programme that helps children learn. You go online and can book a session and really learn a lot. I liked the fact it was online and I (my parents) didn’t have to drive me to a Tuition Centre."
"If you learn something in class and don't understand it, you can go back to her [your Tute teacher] and tell her and she'll help you with it."
