tuition funding

The 16-19 tuition fund is a one-off funding allocation for 2020-2021 academic year only. This funding is specifically targeted to address the potential attainment gap caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  The 16 to 19 tuition fund is ring-fenced to help support learners aged 16-19 who have yet to achieve a grade 4 in GCSE English and/or mathematics. The 16-19 tuition fund is allocated to a school, in addition to the main school funding. 

Maghull High School has a robust system to enable bespoke intervention and support for those students who fall within this category. Each student will have a plan for their intervention following an assessment, and this will be recorded using school systems and costed according to need and the requirement for specialist/additional staffing and resources.

We are committed to accelerating progress and moving students towards their expected progress based on their starting points by:

  • allocating resources to support any student who has not achieved their grade 4 in GCSE English and/or mathematics 
  • ensuring that learners who fall into this category receive extra tuition above and beyond their normal programme of study 
  • providing high quality small group tuition with specialist staff (between 3-5 per group in the majority of cases)
  • prioritising learners for extra tuition to ensure that those who need extra support most, receive it first
