What is an ACE Tutor?

An ACE Tutor’s role is to provide support to the child and the family. They will form trusting relationships and be that pupil’s ‘go to’ person.

Our ACE Tutors meet with our Pupil Premium children regularly on a 1:1 basis, or sometimes in sibling groups. ACE time is child-centred time, which is tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual child. Together, each child and their ACE Tutor will identify areas of focus and from this will create an action plan. This might relate to the following sorts of things:

  • Identifying barriers to learning and finding strategies to support the child and their family with improving learning outcomes
  • Work on improving attendance and punctuality
  • Supporting the children with their friendships, emotions, self esteem or ambitions
  • Celebrating successes, individuality, resilience
  • Working with families to explore enrichment activities and clubs

They may be able to find support with other agencies and also offer extra opportunities in supporting the child with an ambition or aspiration they may have. ACE Tutors will try and help with any barriers that might get in the way of your child becoming the best they can be.

ACE Tutors will listen, support and seek additional help if needed. Our ACE Tutors will also contact parents/carers regularly to talk about their child, offer support and guidance, or just be a person to chat to. We really hope this will offer our children something new and exciting with lots of talk about their futures, their happiness, and their well-being.

Through regular conversations, pastoral tutoring enables a deep understanding of the barriers to learning that exist for our children, particularly our disadvantaged pupils.

Through a coaching approach, the programme develops independence and empowerment for families and pupils to overcome barriers with becoming dependent on external intervention.

ACE Tutors will empower pupils with strategies to release their potential. They will monitor,track, check-in with them and ‘have their back’!
