We will provide support in the form of small group tuition for 16 to 19 learners in English, Maths, and other courses where learning has been impacted, note the groups will be no more than 5 learners. Learners the school are prioritising include the following.
• learners who have not achieved a grade 4 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
• learners with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan
• learners with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), particularly where they have experienced additional disruption to learning as a result of their specific needs and disabilities
WHAT TYPES OF SUPPORT WILL WE PROVIDE?
• Small group (no more than 5) or small group intervention.
• Maths and/or English – targeted intervention to support students to fill gaps in their knowledge, practise their skills and reinforce learning from the curriculum
• Additional learning support – additional sessions that enable learners to overcome barriers to learning associated with disabilities or learning difficulties.
• Existing school systems will be used to track the usage of the fund and the impact of the support on students. We will closely monitor this ‘tuition fund’ cohort to determine the effectiveness of the support and modify support as required.
