Module Code: content-paragraph

TKAT ACE is one-to-one tutoring for disadvantaged pupils.

Within TKAT there are About 5,500 primary and secondary pupils entitled to free school meals who will receive pastoral and academic support.

It is believed to be one of the most comprehensive trust-wide mentoring schemes. It is also more welfare-focused than the National Tutoring Programme, and more sustainable than initiatives funded through one-off recovery premium funding.

The “A Champion for Every Child”, or ACE, the rollout has allowed schools to hire “ambition tutors” full-time.

Dr Karen Roberts, TKAT’s chief executive, said: “It’s quite simple. You give a child an adult who’s their champion, who makes contact with them twice a week.

“If you’ve got that person in your life, you get that relationship going.”

Tutors are trained in helping pupils overcome barriers to academic, social and emotional development.
