The 16-19 tuition fund is one off funding for the 2020/21 academic year that is ring fenced for Sixth Form colleges to support students and mitigate disruption to learning arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Park Academy West London has used the funding to purchase bespoke resources for students who are yet to achieve a grade 4 in English or Maths, or are yet to achieve their grade 5 in Maths and English and require it for their next stage, as well as online accounts for Hegarty Maths. Furthermore, additional Lexia accounts have been purchased to support with raising literacy.
In some cases, the funding will provide additional tutorial sessions to further enhance personal development and progression opportunities for identified students, and used to fund additional pastoral support to ensure the wellbeing of students and allowing them to fully engage with the available academic support.
This statement is in line with the Government guidance and we have published this statement to demonstrate how this additional funding will be utilised in the academic year 2020/21. This statement may be updated to reflect any changes in ESFA guidance.
