Catch Up Funding & 16-19 Tuition
Catch-up Funding, COVID-19
In Autumn 2020, the government announced additional funding for schools to support children and young people to catch up lost time following school closures due to COVID-19. The funding allocation is calculated on a per pupil basis and will be received in Early 2021 and Summer 2021.
It is expected that schools use this funding in a way that suits their cohort and circumstances, for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up on lost teaching over the previous months. DfE guidance is that Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the guidance on curriculum expectations for the next academic year. Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances. To support schools to make the best use of this funding, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has published a coronavirus (COVID-19) support guide for schools with evidence-based approaches to catch up for all students. Schools should use this document to help them direct their additional funding in the most effective way.
Details of how this funding will be used specifically at Kinver High to support our students is detailed in the Catch-up Spending Plan 2020-2021.
16-19 Tuition Funding
As required by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and detailed in their document “16 to 19 funding: 16 to 19 tuition fund”, we are publishing this statement explaining how we will use the funding allocated to Invictus Sixth Form schools.
This funding will be used to provide personalised support through small group tuition, additional tutorial sessions and pastoral support, for eligible 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted by the Covid19 lockdown.
