The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund 2021/22 Academic year
The King’s Academy statement on how we intend to use the fund to support students:
The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund was first provided for the 2020 to 2021 academic year and is being extended beyond 2021 to 2022 for a further two years into the 2023 to 2024 academic year. Although the actual tuition does not need to be for GCSE English or maths, it’s only for students who:
- have not achieved a grade 4 or 5 in English and/or maths
- have a grade 4 or above in English and/or maths, are from an economically disadvantaged background and would need catch-up support. These are defined as students from the 27% most economically deprived areas of the country based on the Index of Multiple Deprivation
All supported students must be on a 16 to 19 study programme and have had their learning disrupted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We need to consider the needs of students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), particularly where students experienced additional disruption.
- GCSE English retake students with grade 3 or less
- GCSE Maths retake students with grade 3 or less
- Disadvantaged students identified with challenges and gaps due to extended school closure
Delivery of tuition
- We will utilise our own teaching and support staff to provide small group tuition
- 1:1 tuition for those students resitting English/ maths will be delivered by MyTutor (for more information, click on the link below)
- All students will have access to GCSE Pod
The King's is committed to ensuring that the tuition fund is used in accordance with the Government’s guidance by-
- Producing this statement explaining how we will use the funding and publicising it on our website
- Recording the use of funding, including reference to the individual students that receive the support the needs of those students, the number of hours of tuition delivered and retain the necessary evidence of the tuition provided.
- Notifying Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) of any unspent funding from this fund in order for it to be reclaimed.
