16 to 19 Tuition Fund – Covid Catch up 2020

The 16 to 19 tuition fund is a £96 million one-off fund for the 2020 to 2021 academic year only. It is ring fenced funding for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted. For example, vocational courses where assessment has been deferred because of lockdown.

St. John Bosco School was eligible to receive £5,182 from this fund for targeted small group tuition. 

This is how we have spent the money on our students:
