In July 2020, the Government announced additional funding for one year for 16-19 providers to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from Coronavirus (COVID 19)
At Trinity, our funding of £4,798 is being used in the first instance to support those Sixth Form students who have not achieved Grade 4 in English and/or Maths GCSE and those students with special educational needs.
Where funding allocation allows, further support will be provided to those who achieved below Grade 5 at age 16 and require additional support in English and Maths to further their other academic studies.
We commit to provide small group (no larger than 5) tuition, over and above the teaching timetabled for these students within the Year 12 (2020/21) cohort. The use of funding and direct costs will be recorded and evaluated regularly.
We will ensure the 16-19 tuition fund is used in accordance with the Government’s guidance by:
- producing this statement setting out how the fund will be used to support the most disadvantaged students
- publishing this guidance on our 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 2020/21
- notifying the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) of any underspend from the Fund for it to be reclaimed
