The 16 to 19 tuition fund 2021 to 2022 academic year

Logic has applied to receive tuition funding to support students in Year 12 and 13 during the academic year 2021-22.

How this funding will be used

Funding will be used to provide a mixture of 1-2-1 and small group tuition for students across both Year 12 and Year 13. Small groups will be used where up to 3 students have been identified has having the same need and where we see benefit from students being able to work with one another. Tuition will include supporting students to improve their reading, comprehension, writing and synthesis skills, both for English and other subjects of study. Functional numeracy will be delivered to those students that have not yet achieved a pass grade in mathematics.

This tuition is in addition to their chosen programme of study.

The use of Centre Assessed grades in the 2021 summer exam series has led to a wider range of abilities being awarded a passing grade in both English and Maths. It is our aim to ensure all students are brought up to the expected standard in order for them to access our Level 3 qualifications and for students to feel confident in operating in modern society.

How eligible students have been selected for support

Alongside examination results from the summer 2021 exam series we are using CAT4 tests to screen cognitive ability. In addition, staff hold assessments during the fourth week of term to help assess access issues that students may experience in their subject. Students identified as not meeting the expected standard have a reading screening. This data, along with information collated by our SEND lead will be used to identify those students that will benefit from additional support.
