The Inflexion Foundation announces three year grant for Action Tutoring

The Inflexion Foundation is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Action Tutoring, through a grant of £200,000 per annum over the next three years. 

Action Tutoring is a national education charity unlocking the potential of children and young people facing disadvantage. Starting with just 20 secondary school pupils back in 2011, Action Tutoring has rapidly grown, now supporting almost 6,000 pupils per year across England. They partner with non-selective state schools and volunteer tutors to run impactful Maths and English programmes that work to close the academic attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their more affluent peers.  This early intervention aims to set primary pupils on a strong trajectory for achieving in secondary school or opening doors to further education, employment or training.

The Inflexion Foundation will support Action Tutoring to deliver its ambitious five-year strategy which is centred around four key pillars of increasing the reach, growth, impact and the advocacy of the charity. In particular, the grant will support the ongoing delivery and development of high-quality tutoring programmes in England, with the aim of increasing the programme to 8,500 – 10,000 pupils a year by 2026-2027, particularly increasing the reach in more rural and coastal areas.
