16-19 Tuition Fund Statement


16 to 19 Tuition Fund Statement of Intent 

We have received funding from the government to help to support students in post-16 education who have been impacted by the lockdown and had their learning disrupted this year.  The money will be available for the 2020-21 academic year only and must be used in that time. 

The government requires the school to use this funding for students who did not reach a 5 at GCSE in English or Maths and are now studying A Level subjects.  This will be used to support the students who this applies to. 

The funding will be used for targeted support classes for the students who did not reach 5s at GCSE, and will be used to support their current studies.

There will be 7 principles that will govern the tutorial sessions:

  1. The groups will be small.  No more than 5 students will be allocated to each group. 
  2. The sessions will be run by a subject specialist teacher or tutor.
  3. The sessions may either have a subject specific knowledge or skills focus to them. 
  4. The subjects chosen for tutoring will be subjects where the students are currently behind based on assessment and mock data. 
  5. Tuition and additional support may be provided using a blend of on site and remote delivery. 
  6. Each session will be clearly planned with a topic or exam activity in mind so that it is as productive and targeted as possible.  They cannot be ‘drop-in’ sessions. 
  7. Evidence will be kept of student attendance at the sessions and the progress they are making in light of this support.
