16 - 19 Tuition Fund

Raynes Park High School 16 - 19 Tuition Fund

The purpose of this statement is to set out how Raynes Park Sixth Form will use its 16 – 19 tuition fund allocation to support students who have been academically disadvantaged due to Coronavirus.

What is the 16-19 tuition fund?

The 16-19 tuition fund is an additional, one off allocation of funding for the 2020/21 academic year that is ring fenced for the Sixth Form to mitigate disruption to learning arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The funding is being provided to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 year olds whose learning has been disrupted and who did not achieve a Grade 5 or above in GCSE English and Maths. 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 additional subjects.

How will Raynes Park Sixth Form use the funding?

Raynes Park Sixth Form has committed to utilise the funding to provide additional support to small groups of students that have not yet achieved a Grade 5 in English or Maths. These intervention sessions will take place in addition to the normal timetabled hours. Within this cohort, targeted student intervention will be focused on the following:

  • Students who have not yet achieved a Grade 4 in English and/or Maths on a Level 2 pathway
  • Students who have not yet achieved a Grade 4 in English and/or Maths on a Level 3 pathway
  • Students with English as an Additional Language who have not yet achieved a Grade 4 in English and/or Maths

Support is being prioritised where students will benefit most from small group tuition, and particular regard is being given to the requirements of disadvantaged students and students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

This statement is in line with the Government guidance and we have published this statement to demonstrate how this additional funding will be utilised in the academic year 2020/21.This document may be updated to reflect any changes in ESFA guidance.
