16 - 19 Tuition Fund
What is the 16-19 Tuition Fund?
The 16 to 19 tuition fund is £96 million of one-off funding for the 2020/21 academic year. The funding is provided to all 16-19 providers to support students and mitigate the disruption to learning arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our share of the finding is £3863.
The tuition fund will be used to provide small group tuition to students aged 16-19 where their learning has been disrupted and they have not yet achieved a grade 5 or above in English and/or Maths as identified by the Government. The subjects covered in the tuition will not be limited to English and maths.
How will we use the tuition fund at Matravers School?
We intend to utilise the funding to provide tuition for:
- GCSE exam re-sit preparation for students who have not yet achieve a grade 4 in English and/or Maths.
- English and/or Maths tuition for students who have not yet achieved a grade 5 and are studying A Level subjects in Social Sciences, Science, Geography and/or Computer Science.
- Vocational knowledge catch-up sessions through a facilitated work group.
We will prioritise students that will benefit most from small group tuition, including students with special educational needs and disabilities, and have met the Government’s eligibility criteria.
