Pupil Premium Funding: Pupil premium is a form of funding in addition to main school funding, to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The Pupil Premium is allocated directly to schools. It is for schools to decide how the funding will be spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils for whom they are responsible. The funding is allocated to schools per FSM pupil. The intended outcome is to close the attainment gap between them and their peers. Disadvantaged Pupils Schools currently receive £1320 per disadvantaged child (defined as having had free school meals (FSM) within the last 6 years or being in care). Pupils from Service Families Pupils from Service families also attract Pupil Premium funding at the level of £300 per child. This money is to be used to support pupils’ emotional needs, for example during times of parental deployment or during a move to, or away from our school.

Pupil Premium has now also been extended to pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years. At Moorside, we recognise that learning to learn skills (metacognition) form a fundamental bedrock for all children. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of current cohorts and is delivered in a flexible manner to engage all children. We take time to know our children and understand their individual needs, enabling us to identify those at risk of falling behind and those who need additional support to broaden aspirations and love learning.

Critical Worker Bookings
The Prime Minister has announced that a new national lockdown will come into force on Wednesday 6 January and that Primary Schools will close from Tuesday 5th January 2021. This is with the exception of Nursery children, children of critical workers and children classed as vulnerable.
This decision does not suggest that schools are no longer safe places for young people. Instead, limiting attendance is about reducing the number of contacts that all of us have with people in other households. When making a critical worker booking, please consider whether:
1) There is anybody else in your household, who could care for your child;
2) Which specific days your child needs to be in school, dependent on your shift pattern/working hours (if you are not at work every day Monday – Friday, then they do not need to be in school every day).
Please use the link below to complete the critical worker booking form. The cut-off time for bookings will be 4.30pm on a Wednesday prior to the following week. This is to ensure we can have appropriate staffing in place. If we do not receive a booking form from you, your child will not have a place allocated.
