16-19 Tuition Fund

The purpose of this statement is to set out how Capital City Academy will use its 16 to 19 tuition fund allocation to support students who have been academically disadvantaged due to coronavirus (COVID-19).

What is the 16-19 Tuition fund?

This is one-off ring fenced funding for schools and colleges during the 2020 to 2021 academic to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19). The funding is being provided to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted. 

Although the actual tuition does not need to be for GCSE English or maths, the students supported all need to be those who had not achieved grade 5 or above in at least one of those subjects at this level by age 16. Providers should prioritise support for students who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or maths.

Funding allocations

Schools have been allocated £150 for full time students without GCSE grade 4 or above in English and/or maths based on the student numbers in the 2020/21 academic year. The tuition fund allocated to Capital City Academy for 2020-21 is £ 14,537.

How will we use the 16-19 tuition fund?

The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund will be used to provide small group tuition for Year 12/13 students who have not yet achieved a grade 5 or above in English and/or maths. The provision will not be limited to tuition for English and maths, but will also be used to help progressing students on vocational courses where assessment may have been deferred because of lockdown. Students who are deemed pupil premium and currently access our 16 – 19 bursary will also be supported by this provision.

Eligible students will be offered an assessment to determine what additional tuition would benefit them and the arrangements which can be put in place. Additional tuition will be delivered in small groups of no more than five students, in accordance with the guidance released by ESFA.
