16-19 Tuition Funding

Forest Hill School is fully committed to providing effective support for “disadvantaged” Sixth Form 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 be one of our priority groups alongside other vulnerable students whose learning has been disrupted.

The needs of these groups of students are paramount and the small group tuition they will be receiving will focus on targeted Maths and English provision as well more specific types of support. The maximum group size will be set at five within the Year 12 (2020/2021) cohort. The use of funding and direct costs will be recorded and evaluated regularly.

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)
