What is Pupil Premium?
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way 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 was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).
At Moorpark we are committed to ensuring equal opportunities, inclusion and freedom from discrimination for all our pupils. We value all children in our school equally and strive to ensure that they enjoy equality of opportunity in all areas of the curriculum.
The link below this brief explanation of provision for SEN at Moorpark are links to more detailed documents including the SEN Policy, the School’s Local Offer and links to useful websites.
In school, we teach your children to be SMART:
Keep SAFE – be careful not to give out personal information
Don’t MEET – don’t meet up with people who you have only met online
ACCEPTING – Accepting messages from people you don’t know or don’t trust can lead to problems.
RELIABLE – Is the information you are viewing true?
TELL – If you feel unsafe or are worried about what you see or hear, you must tell a trusted adult.

Online payments to school with ParentPay!
We will now be using a secure service called ParentPay, where we will be working towards no longer accepting cash and cheque payments, making the school a cash-free environment. Parents who need to continue making payments by cash may do so using the Pay Point network at local convenience stores.
