It was announced today that White Rose Maths has been chosen as an approved National Tutoring Programme (NTP) Tuition Partner. Primary and secondary schools in England can now access high quality, NTP-subsidised tutoring through White Rose Maths to help disadvantaged pupils make up for the teaching time lost during Covid-19 school closures.
To become an Approved Tuition Partner, White Rose Maths and numerous other applicants have undergone a rigorous assessment and review process. Approved providers must meet and exceed a range of criteria, including their ability to collaborate with schools, deliver curriculum-relevant tutoring and reach as many disadvantaged pupils as possible.
White Rose Maths’ schemes, materials and training resources are used in many thousands of schools across England and worldwide. Head of White Rose Maths, Caroline Hamilton, is delighted at the news of the Approved Tuition Partner status. She reflects, “Developed within a successful Multi Academy Trust (MAT), White Rose Maths is driven by our passion for transforming the teaching of maths and enabling every child to enjoy and master the subject. We love what we do and we’re tremendously excited about being part of the new national initiative to help the most disadvantaged children to progress and flourish with top quality tuition.”
Michael Gosling, CEO of the Trinity MAT, comments “White Rose Maths is an important member of the Trinity MAT family and we are proud that this friendly, skilled and inspiring team has been chosen to expand its support for schools and pupils in these very challenging times. It means a lot to us to make a real difference.”
Robbie Coleman, Secretariat Director of the National Tutoring Programme, said:
“The National Tutoring Programme has one simple aim - to support teachers and schools to support their pupils who have missed out the most as a result of school closures. We’re pleased to welcome our new Tuition Partners who will make tutoring accessible to disadvantaged pupils who need it most.
The National Tutoring Programme is a tool for teachers. We hope that by providing high-quality, cost effective tutoring to disadvantaged pupils the NTP will make a difference to those who need it most across the country.”
