16-19 Tuition Fund

As a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic the Department for Education (DfE) in conjunction with the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) have provided additional funding designed to support students in KS5 with English, Maths and other subjects where learning was disrupted.. This 16-19 Tuition Fund is available to all 16 to 19 providers such as Hayes School Sixth Form. This funding is ring faced to provide small group tuition in these subject areas targeted towards:

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 subjects covered in the tuition will not be limited to English and Mathematics but will be identified according to need and existing programmes.

Hayes School Sixth Form commits to using the small group tuition funding that it has been given to mitigate against the impact of the pandemic students. Sessions will be limited to three to five students per group and will be beyond normal timetabled hours. Students will be prioritised for small group tuition based on the guidance released by the (ESFA) which can be found here.

Hayes School Sixth Form will allocate the funding to curriculum areas, prioritising English and Mathematics, to support small groups of students, typically 3 to 5, who have gaps in their knowledge, a need to improve in specific areas or need more time with subject specialists. The aim is to support skills development, knowledge and understanding to enable good progress on their study programme and effective transition to employment., further education or training in some cases, it will provide additional tutorial sessions to further enhance personal development and progression opportunities for identified students and be used to fund additional pastoral support to ensure the wellbeing of students and allowing them to fully engage with the available academic support.

Hayes School Sixth Form is committed to ensure that our students who have had their learning disrupted due to the on-going pandemic are not negatively impacted and can still make effective transition to their next steps.
