Funding for Academic Year 2019/20 – £24,078
16 to 19 Tuition Fund
The 16 to 19 tuition fund is £96 million of one-off funding for the 2020 to 2021 academic year only. It is ring fenced funding for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19).
The funding is being provided to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted. For example, vocational courses where assessment has been deferred because of lockdown. Although the actual tuition does not need to be for GCSE English or maths, the students supported all need to be those who had not achieved grade 5 or above in at least one of those subjects at this level by age 16. All supported students must be on a 16 to 19 study programme.
At Kesgrave High School we are using this funding to support those students who did not achieve English Language GCSE and/or Maths GCSE at Level 4 or above. These students are receiving additional tuition twice a week in small groups to build their skills towards taking these examinations whilst in the Sixth Form. In this way we have prioritised the students most disadvantaged by COVID-19 as defined by the published guidance below:
