16-19 Tuition Fund

16 to 19 tuition fund 2020-21 – The Garibaldi School Statement of use

The Garibaldi school has been provided with £416 of 16-19 Tuition funding for the 2020-21 academic Year. Set out below is some contextual information and a summary of how this money will be used.

The Garibaldi School has a relatively small 6th Form provision centred around A Level and Level 3 Vocational courses. As such the majority of students who join us secure the necessary Grade 4 or higher in English and Maths to start their courses. However there are occasions where students are allowed to commence courses who have yet to secure a grade 4 in one of English or Maths. This is always considered on a case by case basis and in the context of their subject/course choices. These students continue to work towards resits for English and Maths GCSE alongside their Level 3 courses.

The 16-19 tuition funding for 2020-21 will therefore be used to support a small number of students to a) secure a grade 4 in either Maths or English, and b) to support their preparation for final A Level Exams in the summer. Students selected to receive the MyTutor support through 16-19 tuition funding will be disadvantaged students, and those in particular who were adversely affected by the national lockdown

We will be using the online tuition service MyTutor, to provide one to one subject specific support through their virtual platform. These tuition sessions will be conducted in school time in the main, but there is flexibility for these to take place at home if and when required -i.e. over school holiday periods to ensure continuation of provision. The MyTutor platform will record attendance at sessions and will allow for rates of progress and impact to be tracked and measured. It is a flexible service which can be adapted to suit specific student needs in particular learning gaps. Sessions are costed at £20 per hour and so this funding provision will provide for 21 hours of one to one tuition which we can supplement.

A link to the MyTutor web page explains how the service works and what the sessions look like: https://www.mytutor.co.uk/how-it-works.html
