16 – 19 Tuition Fund - Academic Year 2022-23
What is the 16-19 tuition fund?
The 16-19 tuition fund is funding for the 2022/23 academic year that is ring fenced for Sixth Form schools and colleges to support students and mitigate disruption to learning arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The funding is being used to provide small group tuition for 16-19-year olds, where their learning has been disrupted and they have a GCSE Maths and / or English grade of 4 or below. Although targeted students are identified based on their prior attainment in English and Maths, the funding can be used to support students in their learning across a variety of subjects.
Examples of disruption that these students have faced / will face include assessments being deferred due to lockdown or self-isolation, falling behind in their learning due to long / multiple periods of self-isolation and not being able to complete external examinations due to positive COVID-19 cases.
How will Beechwood School use the funding?
For students who have not secured a grade 4 or 5 in English and Maths
At half-term there will be additional revision classes put on for students to support their Resit GCSE examinations in November.
Any student who has not yet secured a grade 4 or who needs a grade 5 to secure the next stage of their education will receive the following:
- Small group tuition – up to 5 students - outside of school hours
- Additional revision classes put on during Easter and May school holidays
For students whose learning was disrupted by COVID-19
Priority for additional support will be afforded to the most disadvantaged students based on their socio-economic background, SEND status and volume of disruption to their learning through COVID-19.
For 2022/23 Beechwood plans to use the funding as follows:
- To use a Learning Mentor to work with small groups outside of school hours to support with learning in a variety of subjects
- To purchase bespoke resources for students targeted in the tuition catch up and use these to support their learning
