Abbeyfield School 16 – 19 Tuition Fund Statement
This statement outlines the support Abbeyfield will provide to students using the 16 to 19 tuition fund in order to help them catch up on learning which may have been missed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The fund will be used for small group and 1:1 tuition in English, Maths, vocational and academic learning for 16 to 19-year-old learners. These tuition sessions will be in addition to the planned study programme hours.
Small group support sessions will be provided to no more than five students per group, focusing on areas where the students have been disadvantaged due to the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting lockdowns. These sessions will be scheduled in addition to the planned hours of their programme that have already been timetabled for the 2021/22 academic year. The type of support offered will be based on an individual need’s assessment of the student.
Examples of support provided include:
Academic study skills support and development Maths and English sessions.
A-level / BTEC revision workshops and assessment preparation support.
