16-19 Tuition Fund

The 16 – 19 Tuition Fund @ King James I Academy.

What is the 16-19 tuition fund?

The 16-19 tuition fund is £96 million of one-off funding for the 2020-21 academic year only. It is ring fenced funding for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus. The funding should be used 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 4 in at least one of those subjects at this level by age 16.


How will we use the 16-19 tuition fund?

King James I Academy is eligible to £9,390 from this fund to provide additional support for students. This support will take the form of

  • Small Group and 1:1 tutoring for students across all subjects, (not limited to English and Maths) to support students make appropriate progress where there is an identified need
  • A targeted intervention program outside of normal curriculum time, and through supervised additional study periods to support students in maintaining academic progress across all subjects
  • Subject specific intervention for targeted students provided by specialist teaching staff in order to maximise engagement and progress
  • The appointment of a dedicated member of staff to liaise with students and parents, overcoming some of the social barriers to learning experienced by specific students
