16-19 Tuition Fund

Harris Academy Battersea will utilise the 16-19 small group tuition fund provided by the ESFA to support students who whose education has been disrupted by the pandemic.


Eligible students 

All students in either Year 12 or Year 13 and studying full time at the academy. Eligible students will be selected on the basis of SEN, students with an EHC plan and Pupil Premium students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

Priority will be given to students who have not achieved a grade 4 or 5 in English and/or Maths. However, students who have not been able to achieve their full academic potential will be considered for additional support.

Data from Year 12 induction assessments, end of Year 12 exams and assessments throughout Year 13 will be used to identify gaps in students' learning and determine students’ eligibility for additional catch-up support. 


How the funding was allocated 

The funding will be utilised for the purpose of small group tuition. Therefore, funding will be allocated to the cost of additional tuition uniquely. Identified students will be provided with tuition that is additional to their programme of study.

Tuition will take place on a one-to-one basis or very small groups of a maximum of up to five students. Tuition will take place either virtually, during the school day, on Saturday mornings or during the school holidays. 

Tuition will take place at the academy, in person within small groups and will be delivered by our highly experienced staff members outside of normal academy hours. Additionally, external tuition will be utilised to provide online support for targeted students in preparation for their exams. In addition to Maths and English GCSE, the fund will be used to support identified students with additional tuition in both A Level and vocational subjects. 


Examples of tuition support include:  

  • GCSE maths and English re-sit exam intervention/tuition 
  • Function skills assessment intervention/tuition  
  • 1-to-1 virtual tuition on ‘MyTuition’ for all PP and FSM students  
  • Vocabulary and literacy small group interventions/tuitions for SEN students 

Accountability 

The intention is to allocate all the funds awarded to the academy in the academic year 2021-2022. The academy will record all students who are in receipt of tuition and evidence the number of hours of funding and how the funding has been allocated for additional small group tuition via the census and individual learner record. The academy will notify ESFA of any unspent funding from this fund at the end of the 2021 to 2022 academic year for it to be reclaimed.
