16-19 Tuition Fund
“The 16 to 19 tuition fund is £96 million of one-off funding for the 2020 to 2021 academic year only. The funding is being provided to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, maths, where learning has been disrupted.”
Funding can only be used to support students entering the Sixth Form this year without a grade 4 in either Maths or English (Source: www.gov.uk)
Driffield School and Sixth Form will be utilising the 16-19 tuition fund to supplement the timetabled delivery of English and Maths for those students who are resitting these GCSE qualifications as they are currently without a grade 4 or above. This will be done by providing additional contact time in smaller groups outside of usual school hours.
