It aims to support pupils to catch up for lost learning so schools can meet the curriculum expectations for the next academic year... read more here.

16-19 tuition fund
St Augustine’s C E High Sixth Form is appreciative of the support afforded to the school through the 16-19 tuition fund. We can confirm that we have used the allocated funds to invest in our existing IT infrastructure to support blended and remote learning. This has included the purchase of headsets and microphones as well as additional workstations, printers and equipment to ensure that the Sixth Form is able to comply with necessary COVID-19 safety regulations. These funds have enabled us to support all Sixth Form students during their time in school and when they have been learning at home.
Tuition Fund Statement
St Augustine’s will be using the tuition fund to support small group tuition for 16-19 years olds who have not achieved a grade 4 or above in English and/or Mathematics by the age of 16. We can confirm that all supported students are on a 16-19 study programme and the funding will be used to support the tuition activity above and beyond the programmes of study already planned.

I am sorry that we find ourselves in a position yet again of our children having to work from home, but with infection rates rising as they are, it is without doubt a reasonable decision under the circumstances, sad as we are to not be seeing the students each day.
As it stands currently, all students are due to return to schools after the February half-term on Monday 22nd February.... read more here.
