  • Academic Year 2020/21 16-19 Tuition Fund

    Published 29/01/21

    16 – 19 Tuition Fund

    The 16-19 tuition fund is a one-off funding allocation for 20-21 academic year only. The fund is being provided to support learners to catch up and close any gaps in their learning that may have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 lockdown.

    This funding will be used to provide personalised support through small group tuition, additional tutorial sessions and pastoral support, for eligible 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted by the Covid19 lockdown.

    Eligible students will be those identified by the Government as disadvantaged, meaning those who had not achieved grade 5 or above at GCSE in either English or maths by age 16 and those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) aged 19 to 24 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Those students who did not achieve a GCSE grade 4 in English or maths by age 16 will be prioritised.

    The funding will be allocated to curriculum areas, prioritising English and maths, to support small groups of students, typically 3 to 5, who typically have gaps in their knowledge, a need to improve in specific areas or need more time with subject specialists. The aim is to support skills development, knowledge and understanding to enable good progress on their study programme and effective transition to the next stage of their learning or employment.

    In some cases, it will provide additional tutorial sessions to further enhance personal development and progression opportunities for identified students, and used to fund additional pastoral support to ensure the wellbeing of students and allowing them to fully engage with the available academic support.

  • Young Minds-Supporting Parents Helpfinder

    Published 03/03/21

    Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different directions and children may be struggling from being in the house, for so much longer than usual. A mixture of concern about Covid, working from home and children at home, along with a possible financial impact make for a stressful household.

    Young Minds have created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond). To find the helpfinder please click:

    We hope that you find this useful.

  • World Book Day at Idsall is Postponed

    Published 03/03/21


    World Book Day at Idsall is postponed until Thursday the 11th of March.

    The £1 book vouchers will be given out during tutor time. And World Book Day books will be available to swap for vouchers at break or at lunch time in the allotted zones for each year group.

    Unfortunately, as Covid restrictions are still in place, we will be unable to have our annual World Book Day party. Hopefully, next year we will be being Alex Rider/Liesl/Katniss Evergreen/Bilbo Baggins/Ginny Weasely/David Attenborough in the Library…
