Following the Government’s announcement about catch-up funding and the National Tutoring Programme, the school gravitated towards the values and vision of Action Tutoring.  

“Action Tutoring has contributed to making sure our disadvantaged Year 6 pupils are on track to meet expected standards in English and Mathematics. We have seen the difference it has made to improving our pupils’ attainment as well as improving their study skills; they have become more independent in their decision making. They’re motivated and enthusiastic to attend as they buy into it as an opportunity to help them improve as independent thinkers and learners. It has also prepared our Year 6s for transition into Year 7.”

At Pakeman Primary School the number of Pupil premium pupils and those with English as an additional language is significantly higher than the National average. The pupil intake at Pakeman has equipped Emma with a wealth of experience and knowledge in supporting children to develop their social, emotional and communication skills.

She leads a committed and passionate team who foster and value pupil wellbeing alongside academic achievement.

“​Action Tutoring has supported the development of those skills and the academic achievement of Pakeman pupils for years, and continues to do so very effectively.”

“Action Tutoring, and everything it stands for, really resonates with my own commitment to social mobility – I believe this is incredibly important. I have always been incredibly impressed by the quality and commitment from everyone I have encountered at Action Tutoring which means that ultimately it provides an extremely high quality and effective resource to support our students.”
