National Tutoring Programme (NTP) participation data has not yet been published.

The department continues to collect data from schools for all three strands of the programme (school-led tutoring, tuition partners and academic mentors) and will be publishing this shortly.

The NTP aims to engage up to 2 million pupils this year, and to deliver up to 90 million hours of tuition by the 2024/25 academic year.

Schools choose which pupils receive tutoring according to their individual needs. However, the £579 million for school-led tutoring has been allocated using the number of pupils in each school attracting the pupil premium. In addition, the department is working to ensure at least 65% of tuition partner tutoring goes to disadvantaged pupils.

An independent evaluation of the programme for the current academic year is being undertaken by the National Foundation for Educational Research.
