Post 16 funding
The 16 to 19 tuition fund is a £96 million one-off fund for the 2020 to 2021 academic year only. It is ring fenced funding for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted. For example, vocational courses where assessment has been deferred because of lockdown.
Although the actual tuition does not need to be for GCSE English or maths, the priority support will be for those students who had not achieved grade 4 or above in at least one of those subjects at this level by age 16.
All supported students must be on a 16 to 19 study programme and have had their learning disrupted in 2019 to 2020 academic year from the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
South Nottinghamshire Academy is eligible to receive £1,553 from this fund for small group tuition.
South Nottinghamshire Academy will prioritise these funds to support 1:1 tuition and small group tuition to any student who did not achieve a grade 4 in English or Maths.
Any remaining funds will be used to support any student who did not achieve a grade 5 or above in at least one of those subjects at this level by age 16, and that we feel would benefit most from extra tuition to make up for lost teaching time.
This will all be in line with the Government guidance for the 16-19 Tuition Fund.
