Covid 19 Response

At The John Moore Primary School we recognise that everyone across the country has faced unprecedented times during the past year and this has affected people in a variety of ways. We know that all children will have had different experiences throughout the year and we endeavour to support them and their families through the challenges we face. 

We hope to provide as much information and support  as possible to help navigate through these times. If you require more information please do contact us.  

Covid Catch-up Funding 

The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This extra funding has been allocated to those families who are in receipt of the Pupil Premium Grant whose children are entitled to free school meals (FSM). Through scrutiny of performance data and other qualitative information from the academic year 2019 to 2020, we have set out a plan for to support the pupils to catch up.

The Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2020-2021 sets out the school’s approaches to catch up, including plans for the use of funding based on our catch-up priorities. The plans for the additional catch-up premium funding are included in the strategy statement, and the rationale for the projected spend is based on evidence-based research into high-quality tuition. 

The effectiveness of this expenditure on the educational attainment of pupils chosen will be assessed in a range of ways with the impact being shown through our pupil premium strategy report.
