16 to 19 Tuition Fund
What is the 16 to 19 Tuition Fund?
The 16 to 19 tuition fund is one-off funding for the 20/21 and 21/22 academic years. It is ring fenced funding for schools to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from COVID-19. The funding is being provided to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, Maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted.
Who is the funding for?
It is 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
How are we using the funding at The Redhill Academy?
Eligible students will have access to a range of the following support, above and beyond the usual planned programmes of education: Additional tutoring with a Maths tutor (maximum group size of 4), Booster sessions in English prior to the June Exam windows through 1:1 sessions with the Sixth Form Academic Mentor. All eligible bursary students will also receive a regular academic mentoring session, with the Sixth Form Academic mentor.
