The 16 to 19 tuition fund is part of a wider package of education recovery support to mitigate the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is ring-fenced funding for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers 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.
Copleston Sixth Form is eligible to receive financial support from this fund for small group tuition. We will be using this funding to support students who have not yet achieved a grade 4 in English and/or maths at GCSE. We will be prioritising those students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) where appropriate. This tuition will be in addition to students’ normal timetabled GCSE English and Maths lessons and will be in groups of no more than 5.
Tuition Support offered will be based on an individual needs assessment, the identification of an individual starting point, clear learning goals, expectations and outcomes.
