The 16-19 Covid catch-up tuition fund

The 16 to 19 tuition fund is to enable schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19).

The funding is being used to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, Maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted as a result of Covid19.

Our first priority is to provide support for the small number of students enrolled in the Sixth Form in either Y12 or Year 13 who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or Maths. This will be through small group/1:1 tuition during non-contact time and provision of revision materials either online or in book format or, in cases where students do not have access to appropriate technology during periods of isolation or lockdown, a laptop.

Although the actual tuition does not need to be for GCSE English or Maths, the school is then targeting, as directed, those students who have not achieved grade 5 or above in at least one of those subjects and who are not making expected progress in one or more of their Level 3 programmes of study. Additional support will be provided through small group teaching, revision, provision of additional learning resources and catch up sessions.
