The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund

Joyce Frankland Academy has so far received £940 from the fund.

In regard to how Joyce Frankland Academy has allocated and used the funding for 16-19 tuition, please see below.

Funding has been allocated to support students who did not achieve at least a standard pass in Maths at GCSE due to disruption to learning caused by Covid 19, and who have, therefore, been identified as being the most appropriate cohort within the 16-19 phase to receive support paid for by the fund. There were no students in the relevant cohort who met the criteria for receiving support for English. All students who are receiving tuition are undertaking full A-Level programmes or the equivalent.

The intervention cohort consists of 12 students in Year 12. Having explored ways of providing support with Maths, it was decided that the most effective provision for students would be the provision of individual one-to-one intervention in the form of online tuition.

The tuition is being provided by “My Tutor” (NTP approved tuition provider). The third-party provider was identified as being the most appropriate way of providing support for the identified students.

Each student will receive 8 sessions of one-to-one tuition, at a cost of £25 per session per student. The online provision started in the Spring term of 2021. There are two one-hour sessions timetabled for every student across each fortnight during the intervention perio
