The 16 to 19 tuition fund is ring-fenced for schools, colleges, and all other 16 to 19 providers, to mitigate the disruption to learning and all other forms of disadvantage arising from the Covid-19 pandemic. The purpose of this statement is to set out how Dormers Wells High School will utilise its 16 to 19 tuition fund.

Who will provide the additional tuition?
The school will deliver all additional tuition using external tuition agencies or teachers and support staff from its own workforce as appropriate.
How can students access additional tuition?
Additional tuition will be personalised to meet individual needs and regular reviews will take place to ensure students are making the necessary progress and attainment.
