20. 16 - 19 Tuition Fund

The 16-19 tuition fund is allocated to a School, in addition to the main School funding, to help support learners aged 16-19 who have yet to achieve a grade 4 in GCSE English and/or Mathematics.

This funding (amount) is specifically targeted to address the potential attainment gap caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Ousedale School has a robust system to enable appropriate intervention and support for those students who fall within this category. All our work through the 16-19 tuition fund is aimed at accelerating progress and moving students towards their expected progress based on their starting points whilst also ensuring students have access to opportunities to develop cultural capital to enhance life chances consistent with our vision.

We are committed to:

  • Allocating resources to support students who have not achieved their grade 4 in GCSE English and/or Mathematics
  • Ensuring that learners who fall into this category receive extra tuition above and beyond their normal programme of study
  • Providing outstanding small group tuition with specialist staff
  • Prioritising students for extra tuition on a risk basis, to ensure that those who need extra support most, receive it first
