16 to 19 Tuition Fund 2021 to 2022

Statement on how we intend to use the fund to support disadvantaged students

The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund was first provided for the 2020 to 2021 academic year and is being extended beyond 2021 to 2022 for a further two years into the 2023 to 2024 academic year. Although the actual tuition does not need to be for GCSE English or maths, it’s only for students who:

  • have not achieved a grade 4 or 5 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

All supported students must be on a 16 to 19 study programme and have had their learning disrupted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We need to consider the needs of students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), particularly where students experienced additional disruption.

Park Academy West London is eligible to receive £3750 from this fund for small group tuition.

The target groups for this fund are:

  • GCSE English retake students with grade 3 or less
  • GCSE Maths retake students with grade 3 or less
  • Disadvantaged students identified with challenges and gaps due to extended school closure
