Hertswood Academy statement on use of 16 to 19 tuition fund - 2020-21 Academic Year

Hertswood Academy has been allocated £6355 as part of the 16-19 tuition fund for the 2020-21 academic year. In line with guidance from the SFA this money has been allocated to support students in years 12 and 13 who do not have a grade 4 in maths and / or English as well as those who have not achieved grade 5 in maths and / or English.

The funding has been allocated to small group teaching sessions to support in subject areas across the curriculum in order to support students to progress to the standards they would otherwise have achieved by the end of year 12 or 13. External staff have been recruited and trained to provide tuition in their areas of expertise. Where capacity exists within school existing school staff have fulfilled this need. Funding has also been allocated to support students with SEND through support from a SEND support assistant.
