16-19 Tuition Fund

The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund 2021/22 Academic Year

THE DE FERRERS 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.

TARGET GROUPS

●       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

IMPACT OF FUNDING

  • Small group tuition for students resitting English/Maths 

  • Small group/1:1 tuition for disadvantaged students identified with challenges and gaps due to extended school closure across vocational and A Level courses

DELIVERY OF TUITION

  • We will utilise our own teaching and support staff to provide the tuition. In circumstances where we cannot meet the needs of the target group through our own staff we will look to utilise third party providers
