Dear Parent / Carer,
As part of our commitment to providing our students with high quality online education and support your child has been selected to take part in the National Tutoring Programme. We have selected students who we believe will benefit the most from having access to this additional level of tutoring because they have shown commitment to their on-line learning already this half term.
Congratulations! Your child has been selected to receive this additional opportunity fully paid for by Moseley School and the National Tutoring Programme. It is an excellent opportunity for your child to receive 15 hours of additional tutoring in English or Maths over the next half term with an NTP tutor. Due to the ongoing lockdown restrictions, these tuition sessions will be delivered online through our NTP Partner – Teaching Personnel.
The sessions will take place twice a week and will focus on specific areas of development identified by their class teacher. These sessions will be added to your child’s ‘Live Lesson timetable’ where they have directed study or free time. The sessions will begin immediately after half term and run until Easter. A new student timetable will be sent out following this letter.
The NTP Tutors
All tutors on the programme are highly qualified. They have passed stringent vetting and safeguarding checks in line with DfE requirements. They have also completed comprehensive training equipping them with the skills to deliver impactful tuition online.
The tuition sessions will take place on the TEAMS. Your child will receive an invitation to their tutoring session from the tutor; it is important they look for and accept this invitation to their session. It will then appear on their calendar.
Interactive Lessons – tutors and students work on a highly interactive shared whiteboard so that pupils are active participants in their learning rather than passive observers.
Searchable Lesson Recordings – every lesson is recorded, transcribed and fully searchable, allowing students to revisit their tutoring to help embed learning.
Performance Tracking – complementing rich lesson data, student learning is tracked at the start and end of their tuition programme as well as after each individual lesson. Assessment and attendance information will be shared with Teaching personnel and Moseley School.
To get the best from this opportunity, it is really important that your child remains fully engaged with their tuition programme for these 15 sessions. To support the success of the programme for your child, please follow the steps and processes outlined below:
- Your child will need access to a suitable device preferably a PC or Laptop. If you have any issues with this please contact your child’s Head of Year.
- Ensure your child attends every tuition session and completes the full 15 hour programme.
- Notify the school in advance of any tuition session your child is unable to attend.
I hope you agree this additional tutoring will be invaluable alongside our continuing remote learning timetable. We very much appreciate your full support.
Mr S Edwards
