16-19 Tuition Fund 2020-2021
 

What is the 16-19 Tuition Fund?

The school will receive £150 for each student in year 12 who achieved less than a grade 4 in English or Maths.

How will the school spend the funding?

The school will use the funding to provide 1:1 and small group teaching for these students. The aim of this is to help them prepare for re-sitting their English and/or Maths exams and in doing so achieve a grade 4+.

The school will track each child in the group to ensure any barriers are identified and tackled.

Why this approach

The EEF (https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/) lists 1:1 and small group tuition as having high impact. Due to the relatively small amount of funding and the existing success of this model in school, adding additional resource to an existing structure is the most appropriate use of the funds.

If you would like to report an absence for your child in the Sixth Form you can do so by telephone, email or written note.

Dress Code
 

Aims

  • That Sixth Form students look smart, ready to work and act as good ambassadors for the Minster School
  • That they act as role models to which other students aspire
  • That the differences between their dress and the rest of the school mark them out as more mature, responsible young adults and are immediately recognisable as Sixth Form students

Overall statement: Sixth Form students should dress appropriately for a school or office environment, wearing clothes that give them a professional appearance. In all cases, branding should be minimal and without large logos.

This includes:

Shirts or blouses (ties optional)

Polo shirts

Suit jackets

Jumpers, smart sweatshirts or cardigans

Skirts or dresses (of a length suitable for a school or office environment)

Trousers, chinos or smart black jeans

Smart footwear (not trainers)

The following are not acceptable:

Hoodies

Unbuttoned shirts

Transparent tops

Off the shoulder tops

Non-black denim

Strappy vest tops

Crop tops

T-shirts

Shorts

Leggings worn as trousers

Trainers

Soft canvas shoes

Underwear showing

Sportswear

‘Distressed’ clothing

 

NB. The dress code is subject to the school’s discretion which, in all cases, is final. If a student is unsure whether an item of clothing is acceptable under the dress code they should seek clarification before purchasing or wearing it to school.

The Sixth Form Dress Code is reviewed with students on an annual basis. Any changes made will be communicated to students and parents.
