The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund
Statement on the use of the 16-19 tuition fund as required by the ESFA – detailed in their document 16-19 tuition fund released in August 2020.
We are publishing this statement to explain how we will use this funding in line with the guidance to prioritise support for disadvantaged students at Harris Academy Beckenham. Where subsequent ESFA guidance changes, this statement may be updated to reflect any such change.
We are publishing this statement to demonstrate how additional funding of £1,817 for 16 to 19-year-old students (called the ’16 to 19 tuition fund’) will be utilised in the 2020-21 funding year.
The additional funding made available to the Academy will be used to provide 1:1 tuition and resources (textbooks and revision guides) in English, Maths and vocational courses where learning has been disrupted, for example where assessment has been deferred and/or otherwise disrupted because of lockdown. Based upon teacher assessments, each student will have a plan for their intervention and their tutors will be informed of the areas of focus, and this will be recorded using Academy systems and costed according to need and the requirement for specialist/additional staffing and resources
Eligible students will be those identified by the Government as disadvantaged, meaning those who had not achieved a grade 4 or above in English or Maths by the age 16. All will be on a 16 to 19 study programme.
