At Tute we are pioneering new ways to improve pupil attainment.
We already partner with hundreds of schools, LAs and colleges to find innovative methods to engage learners and to deliver our vision of empowering teachers, parents and students to bring the best teaching to all. We are putting our vision into practice with evidence-based solutions and best practice studies.
Crucially, Tute changes the basic economics of your school: our solutions can help support Progress 8, underpin your pupil premium spend, maintain a rich curriculum, reduce your operating costs and bring about new and significant opportunities to engage with parents.
Using Tute has been hugely empowering for staff as an efficient way of delivering bespoke intervention for students. The professional approach of Tute teachers to the process has ensured that detailed feedback on next steps that students and staff would require to boost performance. It created many efficiencies for us including reducing staff workload."
Tute is now becoming a valued instrument in the academy for supporting students and has contributed to the growth in attainment over the last 3 years.
92% of students reported that Tute had a positive impact on their learning.
SOS provide these lessons to a wide range of pupils including those who are out of school due to medical needs, those within Surrey’s existing alternative provision services including Access to Education (A2E), Special Educational Needs (SEN), Looked after Children (LAC), school refusers and increasingly those at risk of permanent exclusion.
The challenge for Surrey County Council and Tute was to bring some of these exciting learning methods into the alternative provision environment at a time when budgets were being squeezed, whilst also providing a way that the outcomes for these students could be made more measurable.
Attendance, self-esteem and attainment have all increased whilst associated costs have gone down.
“As a school it’s a good thing because it allows us to run courses that we can’t actually staff ourselves; we’ve not got the staffing commitment, or the cost precludes that. It’s a much cheaper way of delivering a subject for a very small cohort of students and the key thing is to make sure that the students are keen and motivated and want to do it. We’re happy that they are getting a decent quality education and will come out with successful outcomes. I’d certainly recommend Tute to other headteachers and other schools in a similar situation to ours because it does enable you to run a curriculum which is broader."
