Post 16 Catch Up Funding 2023-24

Jesmond Park Academy is in receipt of funding to facilitate “catch-up” tuition for post-16 students. The criteria for identifying students who should receive this support includes: 

  • Those who meet the criteria for disadvantage 
  • Students who have not yet achieved a grade 4 or 5 in English and/or Maths


The funding will be spent on a combination of the following support: 

  • 1-1 tutoring, including the use of an external tutoring provider
  • Small group in house tutoring 


Tutoring support sessions will be prioritised for those students that have not achieved a grade 4 in GCSE English and/or Maths. We also anticipate using the funding for eligible students, taking into account specific needs, in some vocational courses. Tuition Support offered will be based on individual needs, the identification of individual starting points, clear learning goals, expectations and outcomes.
