At Chiltern Tutorial School


At Chiltern teachers plan lessons that match work to the needs of all the pupils in their class or group.

Teachers respond to pupils’ diverse learning needs, set suitable learning challenges and overcome potential barriers to learning .

Accurate formative assessment is key, so that teachers know where pupils already are.

However, this on its own is not sufficient. Teachers need to know at what level the pupil should be operating in relation to their age. Identify the gaps that needs to be closed.


The overriding principle at Chiltern Tutorial School is to instill children with the confidence to learn and to close the gaps in their attainment, in order that they may make a successful return to a mainstream school environment.

Our curriculum provides a specialised,

  • multi-sensory approach with an emphasis on basic literacy and numeracy skills
  •  access to the full National Curriculum.
  •  carefully structured, individualised programme of work designed to remediate difficulties and provide a sound basis for future study
  •  access to the full range of subjects that will prepare them for their secondary school and adult life.


Whereas in mainstream education pupils study Key Stages according to their chronological age, at Chiltern Tutorial they study according to their individual needs.

Consequently, Key Stage 1 material is available for pupils  who still need to master the most basic skills even though they are of an age that normally suggests the teaching of a Key Stage 2 curriculum.

This facility exists throughout the school with the overriding ethos that we do not teach to a curriculum,

we teach the individual child!
