Home Tuition Service

For some of our students, one of our bases may not be the best learning environment for them. There is often a variety of reasons for this including mental and/or physical health reasons or the student may be post-operative.

For these students we aim to tailor a package according to their needs. This is decided upon by a team of Pilgrim staff including their academic link, reintegration support officer and senior leaders. These packages may include face to face teaching in the home, a mix between face to face and virtual learning as well as blended learning in the base and in the home.

Depending on a student’s needs, teaching is usually for 5 hours per week and in the home, is mostly delivered by a team of Extended Support (ES) teachers. These have a wealth of experience in various subject areas and we match suitable teachers with students accordingly.

In addition to academic lessons, students in the home receive pastoral support from our dedicated Home Reintegration Support Officers (HSRSOs) on a regular basis.

ES teachers receive the support and guidance they need from both the HSRSO and Academic Link, whose role is to monitor the academic progress of the student and liaise with the mainstream school for curriculum information.

For students who are dual registered (Pilgrim and Mainstream) there is a shared responsibility for safeguarding and attendance.

For students who are single registered with Pilgrim we hold responsibility for safeguarding and attendance. For these students, where they are not receiving a lesson or pastoral visit, safe well checks may be made by our RSOs or Home Tuition Administration Team to keep in touch.

Overseeing and supporting the team on a daily basis are the Assistant Head teacher (Home Tuition) and Pastoral Manager.
