Measure Activity
Use of funding for Current Academic Year Small group tuition and intervention programmes delivered by English and Maths specialists in addition to the timetabled resit lessons. The small group sessions will take place at appropriate times

We also will provide tuition and pastoral support to assist high achieving disadvantaged students to reach their full potential, in addition to supporting other students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

In addition will provide extra support/tuition for students who had disrupted learning especially in vocational/practical subjects


How this addresses barriers to learning. Target bespoke areas of lost learning and/or areas of underperformance which prevent students from accessing a grade 4/5 in English and or Maths and/or reaching their potential across their subjects. In addition, support will be provided, where appropriate, for students who have lost learning particularly in vocational/practical subjects.
