At Barnwell School, the 16 to 19 Tuition Fund is being used as follows:
The fund will primarily be used to provide small group tuition for sixth form students who have not yet achieved a grade 5 or above in English and/or maths. However, the provision will not be limited to tuition for English and maths but will also be used to help students progress to successful destinations and to provide support both during and following the pandemic.
Students with special educational needs and disabilities, who require additional tuition to help them ‘catch up’ with their studies, will also be supported by this provision.
The tuition sessions will be scheduled in addition to the planned programme of study for the identified students. Tuition and additional support may be delivered using a blend of online and in-school delivery.
Tuition support offered will be based on an individual needs’ assessment, examples of some of the Tuition Support we will offer include:
• GCSE re-sit preparation
• Functional skills preparation
• IAG with our career’s advisor
• Academic mentoring
• Subject specific support
The impact of these sessions will be monitored based upon student performance and progress and their preparation for and confidence in applying to future destinations, including higher education, employment, and apprenticeships.
