16-19 Tuition Funding Statement
This statement outlines how we are using the tuition funding for Mulberry Academy Shoreditch Sixth Form. Students who do English and Maths GCSE receive additional tuition sessions to support with catch up. We also provide additional support for students on the vocational pathway (we offer Business, IT, Health and Social Care and Level 2 in Public Services and Work Skills) with a particular focus on students with SEND and EHCP needs in order to prepare them for the January exam series. All sessions for the students in Maths and English and on the vocational pathway have included in school and online support. Tuition funding has also supported our blended learning programme in terms of access to technology and providing traditional learning materials at home. This support has been targeted at students who do Math and English GCSE resits, students on the vocational pathway and students with SEND and EHCP needs. Additionally we have developed student and staff capability with training and CPD with the adoption of Microsoft Teams. This year we are developing Sixth Form with training on the curriculum and ensuring that all teachers who are new to Sixth Form teaching are supported. We have allocated laptops to all Sixth Form students to support them with their subjects and independent study sessions. We have prioritised students who are doing vocational subjects and have SEND and EHCP needs. We have also added support for students who are doing A Level Maths and Science to support them with the core mathematical skills they need to succeed in these subjects. This support is also to reflect the growing numbers we have in these areas.
The impact of this funding has meant that exam outcomes in GCSE resits and vocational subjects have improved. More students have engaged with their subject s through online learning in year 1 and accessing other materials which has led to an increase in the morale of key students. Improved attendance and outcomes as a result of this funding will mean that more students will go on to aspirational destinations post Sixth Form.
