16 to 19 Tuition Fund
What is the 16 to 19 Tuition Fund?
The 16 to 19 tuition fund is £96 million of one-off funding for the 2020 to 2021 academic year only. 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?
Although the actual tuition does not need to be for GCSE English or maths, the students supported are those who had not achieved grade 5 or above in at least one of those subjects at this level by age 16.
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 sessions with maths and English tutors (maximum group size of 3)
- Additional booster sessions prior to the January and June Exam windows
- 1:1 sessions with the Sixth Form Academic Mentor
