The Bemrose School 16 to 19 Tuition Fund Statement 2021 – 2022

The Department of Education announced funding to support students whose learning was disrupted as a result of the COVID pandemic. This 16-19 Tuition Fund is available to all 16 to 19 providers such as The Bemrose School and is ring-fenced for 16 to 19 small group tuition only.

The guidance indicates that the supported students must be on a 16 to 19 study programme and who have not achieved grade 5 or above in GCSE maths and/or English by age 16. The funding can be used to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted.

The Bemrose School commits to using the small group tuition funding that it has been given to mitigate against the impact of the pandemic on our study programme students. Small groups will contain no more than 5 learners (or 7 learners in exceptional circumstances), with the ambition of having no more than 3 learners in each group. The additional sessions per group will be above and beyond normal timetabled hours.

Students will be prioritised for small group tuition based on the guidance released by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). Support sessions will be prioritised for the following students:

  • Those with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan.
  • Those who have a grade 4 or below in GCSE Maths and/or English.
  • Those 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.
  • Those students most disadvantaged (from the 27% most economically deprived areas of the country based on the index of multiple deprivation)
  • Those classed as vulnerable or impacted most by the pandemic.
  • Level 2 students and some level 3 students on courses who have not achieved a grade 5 & experienced disrupted learning.

Tuition Support offered will be based on individual needs, the identification of an individual’s starting point, clear learning goals, expectations, and outcomes. Examples of some of the Tuition Support on offer will include:

  • GCSE exam re-sit preparation sessions.
  • Vocational qualification assessment preparation sessions.
  • Bespoke subject support/catch-up sessions.
  • Student support sessions.

Our commitment

The Bemrose School is committed to ensuring the tuition fund is used in accordance with the Government’s guidance on the 16 to 19 Tuition Fund by:

  • Producing this statement setting out how the fund will be used to support the most disadvantaged students.
  • Publishing this guidance on The Bemrose School Website.
  • Recording the use of the fund, including references to individual students who receive support, the needs of those students, the number of hours of tuition delivered and retain the evidence of the tuition provided.
  • Deliver the extra tuition and spend the allocated funds in the academic year 2021/22.
  • Notify the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) of any underspend from the Fund for it to be reclaimed.
