16-19 Tuition Fund

Tuition Fund 2023-24

Harris Academy Bermondsey has been provided with £5087 for students who meet the eligibility criteria to receive small group tuition.


Eligible students for the 16-19 Tuition Fund will be:

  1. Students who have not achieve a grade 6 in GCSE English and or Maths and require catch up support.
  2. Students who meet the 16-19 Bursary Fund.
  3. Students with high prior attainment who are eligible for the 16-19 Bursary Fund can receive tuition support.
  4. Students on the SEND register and have an Educational Healthcare plan subject to meeting eligibility for the fund.
  5. Students who did not achieve a grade 4 in English and Maths to be prioritised.

Small group tuition is classified as:

  1. Small groups of up to 5 students. In exceptional circumstances this can be increased to 7 students.
  2. the groups must be clearly defined
  3. each group must have their own tutor
  4. the space must be conducive to multiple small group activity

Examples of exceptional circumstances include:

  • where workshop space is at a premium
  • if the absence of a member of staff requires the merger of 2 existing groups on a temporary basis
  • where a specialist staff member has limited availability

* The tuition fund should not include costs such as diagnostic tools, room hire, equipment, laptops, transport, or stationery.


Support from a third-part provider (buying in a service)

Harris Academic Bermondsey will be responsible at all times for:

  • Monitoring the quality of provision
  • Record keeping
  • Managing the funding in line with the conditions of funding and controls and accountability requirements.
  • Providing ESFE and DFE with management information as required.


Additional activities by the fund:

In addition to general activities supported by the fund, for eligible SEND students and those with EHC plans aged 19 to 24, the fund can also be used to provide pastoral support including mental health and wellbeing.

Institutions should have regard to the needs of SEND students, particularly where they have experienced additional disruption to learning because of their specific needs and disabilities. Institutions may choose to use this funding to support eligible learners with SEND to catch up on vocational and academic skills, and skills and learning that are important for their preparation for adulthood.

Record keeping

All departments must refer to the list of students who are eligible to receive the Tuition-Fund.

All departments using the tuition-fund must record in a register who attended the intervention and the date of when it took place.

All departments will refer to both summative and in class assessments to determine the type of intervention that is required for students.
