Statement to support 16 to 19 tuition funding
The Stourport High School and VIth Form College commits to the support of disadvantaged students whose learning has been disrupted due to the COVID-19 outbreak during the 2019 to 2020 academic year.
Sixth form students not achieving at least a grade 4 in maths or English will the priority group. The use of funding and direct costs will be recorded and evaluated regularly. The needs of this small group of students will be paramount and will form the outline and focus for the small group tuition they will be receiving. The maximum group size will be set at five within the year 12 (2020/2021) cohort.
Research suggests that small group tuition of between two and five students is more effective than larger groups. This enables the teacher to closely match the work to the students’ needs and use ongoing, low stakes testing, to gauge progress and teach focused and specific content. (EEF, 2018)
Students will receive weekly lessons to support their maths and English GCSE attainment and the first resit examination will be made available to them during November 2020.
