16-19 Tuition Fund Statement
YMCA Key College

Purpose: The purpose of this statement is to outline how Key College has planned and utilised the 16 to 19 tuition fund allocation used to support students disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The funding allocation was aimed at supporting students between 16 to 19 years of age and for those with low prior attainment, for example, students who did not have a prior GCSE grade 4 or above in English and/or Maths at 16 years of age. How Key College is utilising the funding allocation to support students: Small groups of 2-3 students at a time will be provided with additional Maths and English tuition in addition to their regular timetable planned for the 2020/21 academic year. The tuition sessions will be delivered face to face with students on site or through virtual online platforms if necessary. All students that are selected have been chosen as they are currently without a GCSE grade 4 or below in Maths and English. The extra tuition will be provided by a tutor with many years of experience working as a support tutor with a specialism in the support of functional skills. Some examples of the support that will be offered include:

  • Separate small tuition groups for students
  • Additional Maths and English workshops
  • Supported study groups aimed at Maths and English support
  • Revision sessions for Maths and English students close to exams
  • Additional Maths and English resources to support further learning
  • Individual tailored support for each student.

Our pledge: Key College pledges to maintain accurate records of all students who are targeted through this support. We will ensure that we:

  1. Record the individual students who received this support, identifying clearly why they were chosen in line with guidance.
  2. Identify the needs of each student clearly and accurately.
  3. Record the number of hours of additional tuition received for each student separate to their main register.
  4. Retain evidence of tuition that is provided.
  5. Keep accurate registers of those that engage.
  6. Record and retain evidence of any impact the support has on our students.
  7. Ensure we notify the ESFA of any unspent funding.
  8. Deliver the extra tuition and spend the associated funding in the 2020 to 2021 academic year.
