FUNDING 2015/16

We are pleased the level of funding available within school budgets to support One-to-One Tuition as a key intervention will remain as in 2014/15. We have been advised the funding will remain in the AWPU allocation schools and academies receive and will be calculated from the number of pupils on roll. All schools were sent a letter in March 2015 detailing the amount of funding for 2015/16. If you are not aware of the amount for your school, please email consultancy@essex.gov.uk.

 

We advocate that funding continues to be used for One-to-One tuition in Essex because it continues to be a successful intervention which supports improvement in the attainment and progress of vulnerable children - those working at below age-related expectations, those not on track to make expected progress within the Key Stage, FSM eligible pupils, SEN pupils and Children in Care.

 

The impact of tuition is also evidenced in increased pupil confidence, engagement and attitudes to learning.

 

We also strongly recommend the funding continues to be used within the same parameters as when funded in previous years because research has shown this model enables tuition to have greatest impact:

  • One pupil to one tutor
  • 10 sessions of one hour for the pupil
  • Tutor with Qualified Teacher Status or equivalent qualification and DBS (previously CRB) clearance
