Skegness Academy

The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund 2021 to 2022 Academic Year

At The Skegness Academy, the 16 to 19 Tuition Fund is being used as follows: The fund will primarily be used to provide small group or 1:1 tuition for Sixth Form students who have not yet achieved a grade 5 or above in English and/or maths and from economically disadvantaged background. The provision will not be limited to tuition for English and maths, but will also be used to help students on to successful destinations and to support them with Covid recovery. Students with special educational needs and disabilities, who require additional tuition to help them catch up with their studies, will also be supported by this provision. 

The tuition sessions will be scheduled in addition to the planned programme of study for the students. Tuition and additional support may be delivered using a blend of online and in-school delivery. Tuition support offered will be based on an individual needs’ assessment, examples of some of the Tuition Support we will offer include:  

  • GCSE re-sit preparation  
  • Academic mentoring  
  • Subject specific support  
  • Coaching sessions 
  • Qualified counselling session to remove the barriers left by Covid 
  • Careers support 
  • Literacy and numeracy intervention 
  • Mental Health support 

The impact of these sessions will be monitored based on student performance and progress in their courses and their preparation for and confidence in applying to future destinations, including higher education, employment and apprenticeships.
