16-19 Tuition Fund

Posted on: 03/02/2021

At Whitefield School, the 16 to 19 Tuition Fund is being used as follows:
  • The fund will be used to provide small group tuition for sixth form students who have not yet achieved a grade 4 or above in English and/or maths. However, the provision will not be limited to tuition for English and maths, but will also be used to help students on to successful destinations and to support them throughout and following on from the pandemic.
  • Students with special educational needs and disabilities, who require additional tuition to help them catch up with their studies, will also be supported by this provision.
  • The tuition sessions will be scheduled in addition to the planned programme of study for the students. Tuition and additional support may be delivered using a blend of online and in-school delivery.
 
Tuition support offered will be based on an individual needs’ assessment, examples of some of the Tuition Support we will offer include:
  • GCSE re-sit preparation
  • Functional skills preparation
  • IAG with our careers advisor
  • Academic mentoring
  • Subject specific support
 
The impact of these sessions will be monitored based on student performance and progress in their courses and their preparation for and confidence in applying to future destinations, including higher education, employment and apprenticeships.
