16-19 Tuition Fund Statement
What is the tuition fund?
The 16-19 tuition fund is one off funding for the 2020/21 academic year that is ring fenced for Sixth Form colleges to support students and mitigate disruption to learning arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The funding is being used to provide small group tuition for 16-19-year olds where their learning has been disrupted and they have a GCSE Maths and / or English grade of 4 or below. Although targeted students are identified based on their prior attainment in English and Maths, the funding can be used to support students in their learning across a variety of subjects.
Examples of disruption that these students have faced / will face include assessments being deferred due to lockdown or self-isolation, falling behind in their learning due to long / multiple periods of self-isolation and not being able to complete external examinations due to positive COVID-19 cases.
How we will use the funding
At Lutterworth Sixth we intend to utilise the funding in the following ways:
To provide additional support to students who have not yet achieved a grade 4 in Mathematics or English.
To purchase bespoke resources for students targeted in the tuition catch up and use these to support their learning.
To provide bespoke small group tuition and support for Post 16 students who did not achieve English or Maths GCSE at a standard pass grade (4 or above)
To support identified Year 12 students to transition into their chosen Level 3 courses where disruption has been experienced.
To support identified Year 13 students to reach their target grades and access their chosen Post-18 route where their Level 3 study has been disrupted.
This statement is published in line with the Government guidance to demonstrate how this additional funding will be utilised in the academic year 2020/21.This document may be updated to reflect any changes in ESFA guidance.
