16-19 Tuition Fund 2021-22


Hinchingbrooke Sixth Form - 16-19 Tuition Fund 2021-2022

The purpose of this statement is to set out how Hinchingbrooke Sixth Form will use the 16-19 tuition fund to support students who have been academically disadvantaged due to Covid-19

GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE

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
  • Students with special educations needs and disabilities (SEND) will be considered for additional support via this fund, particularly where they have experienced additional disruption. 

HOW WE WILL USE THE FUNDING

We will use this funding to deliver small group tuition either by school staff or by online tutoring throughout the year,  once the needs of the students have been assessed. Students who are resitting their GCSE maths will have access to ‘GCSEPod’ and online tutoring. Tuition groups will be no bigger than 5 and the tuition will be scheduled in addition to existing programmes of study.  We will use the tuition to fill the gaps in skills and subject knowledge and this will be allocated according to starting points, learning aims and student MEGs.

OUR COMMITTMENT

Hinchingbrooke Sixth Form, ACES Academy Trust 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 us 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
