Values and Ethos
This statement is to outline how Sponne School will utilise the ESFA funding made available to schools and colleges to support students who have had their learning impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
The targeted and strategic use of this fund will reflect our school ethos, ensuring that students ‘dream, believe, achieve’ to give them more access to future opportunities. The funding can be used to provide small group tuition for 16-19-year olds on a study programme where their learning has been disrupted and they have a GCSE Maths and/or English grade of 4 or below at age 16. Although the support is targeted based on prior attainment in Maths/English, the funding is not limited to support in these subjects and will be provided according to need.
Support is being prioritised where students will benefit most from small group tuition, and particular regard is being given to the requirements of disadvantaged students and students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
The school will use the funding as follows:
Where students have achieved a grade 4 or below in English or maths, we will support students with literacy and numeracy skills, study skills and provide additional support with their chosen subjects and within their post 16 learning aims. This will be through small group sessions and targeted 1:1 sessions in addition to the existing timetabled hours. Support will be offered and provided based on the individual needs of each student.
The school is committed to ensuring that the tuition fund is used in accordance with the Government’s guidance on the 16 to 19 Tuition Fund by:
- Producing this statement setting out how the fund will be used to support the most disadvantaged students.
- Publishing this statement on the school website.
- Recording the use of the fund, including references to individual students who receive support, the needs of those students, the number of hours of tuition delivered and retaining the evidence of the tuition provided.
- delivering the extra tuition and spend the allocated funds in the academic year 2021/22
