16 to 19 Tuition Fund 2021- 2022

16 to 19 Tuition Fund 2021 - 2022

The 16 to 19 tuition fund was provided for the academic year 2020 to 2021. Further funding is being provided for 2021 to 2022, 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. 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 4 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. The funding is also to include students from the 27% most economically deprived areas of the country based on the index of multiple deprivation.

Cleeve Park School has been allocated funding of £11,873.

At Cleeve Park we have prioritised the students who are at a disadvantage. These would be our students with low prior attainment, meaning those who did not achieve a grade 4 and above in any of their GCSE Maths and/or English, as well as our students who are from economically deprived backgrounds. We are also looking at students who have fallen behind in their A Level subjects and are not on track to achieving their target grades.  

We have been working alongside an external provider which specialises in providing qualified, DBS Checked and suitable online tutors and have been able to offer us a wide variety of subject specialists to provide our students with the additional support needed.

We will firstly identify the students who are two grades below their targets to organise small group tutoring sessions across a variety of subjects including Maths and English retake as well as our Vocational and A Level courses. We will be providing  learners with the resources they may need to support them whilst being tutored. We will also be inviting these students into school for half term interventions where we will be able to provide them with additional tutoring to support their needs.

The half term interventions will be run by our teaching staff, whilst the online tutoring will be delivered by a third party provider.
