What is the Virtual School?

Tute’s live lessons are packaged into different curriculums to meet the needs and budgets of our partners. The Virtual School is one of those curriculums.
The VS is a fixed timetable of lessons, built flexibly to enable immediate provision for students in need of alternative education.
Our timetables are built for key stages 2, 3, and 4 and covers core and further subjects.
There is a choice of differentiated programmes to meet different levels of progress. All schemes of learning are mapped to the National Curriculum meaning that students learn on a par with their peers in mainstream.

What Key Stages and subjects does it cover?

KS1, KS2, KS3, and KS4

English, maths, science, humanities, English literature, SMSC and ESOL. 

Which students does it suit?  How best is it used?

Our VS serves many students including those who have been excluded (including internal exclusions), need day 6 provision, re-engagement with learning and short-term alternative provision.
Many students are with us long term because they engage in their learning and cover content and skills that are often difficult for PRUs and LAs to provide in challenging circumstances.
It is sometimes the case that the VS is a child’s only source of education and for some, is part of a wider solution with other provision slotting in around the learner’s chosen timetable.

How does it work?

Students can join our shared Virtual School timetable at any point during a half term and can be enrolled into any combination of subjects and programmes.

Select from 2-22 differentiated lessons per week and your student/s will receive login details within 48hrs of us receiving your completed booking form.

How is student progress tracked? 

After every lesson, the Tute teacher will assess the students’ progress and engagement against the learning objectives directly in the Tute platform.

They will also provide a suggestion for the student’s progress.

  You will be able to access this detailed and summarised information about this and attendance in the platform. You can also download reports. 

How much does it cost?

Virtual School: £12.00 per student, per lesson.

Is there a shared and private option? 

Tute’s Virtual School is available as a shared option only which means that Tute determines the content, the timetable and your student/s will join others referred by other establishments.
