Sixth Form Catch Up Grant

This document lays out how the Sixth Form at Tudor Grange Academy Redditch has, and continues to, allocate funding to support students with the recovery of their education due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Providing a bespoke provision is absolutely central to our sixth form ethos and we tailor our support individually to student needs, we feel that by doing this we can ensure the best outcomes for them.

Previously we have supported, and continue to do so, all students who do not have English and Maths at GCSE level 4 and those who are considered disadvantaged or have additional needs such as SEND. The strategies employed for these students are:

Additional tuition for those retaking their English and Maths examination to achieve a Level 4 or higher
Timetabled study support for students who need additional support as identified by their subjects
Purchasing revision guides and textbooks
We have also supported some of these students, as well as others, by providing them with laptops so they are able to access remote learning to overcome the challenges they were experiencing with technical provision.

As a sixth form we continue to support all our students by offering a wide and varied curriculum which has been praised in the academy’s recent report from the Inclusion Quality Mark, which has led to the school receiving the status of centre of excellence. Alongside this, through small classes size and a dedicated sixth form team, we aim to support all our students with the recovery of their education so they can continue to thrive post-18.
