​The department has invested over £1 billion in the National Tutoring Programme (NTP), which runs from the 2020/21 academic year to the 2023/24 academic year. The NTP is a time limited, four-year programme to support pupils to catch up following the Covid-19 pandemic.

The department remains committed to the objective that tutoring should be embedded across schools in England, following the end of the NTP.

Schools are best placed to decide how to spend their funding, depending on their unique circumstances and priorities, which may include spend on tutoring.

Tutoring is included in the menu of approaches in the pupil premium guidance for school leaders.
