How does Barningham CEVCP spend it’s pupil premium?

At Barningham CEVC Primary school, our mission statement is to grow in faith, grow in our learning and grow our future world. We have a strong belief that this concept of growth and ambition is key for our disadvantaged pupils as well as our whole pupil community.

As a small, rural village school, our pupils face the disadvantage that rurality brings from lack of access to public transport and suitable road networks as well as the social isolation and lack of public spaces/activities to be a part of.

Our goal is to be a community hub for families and the community alike, a supportive structure for early help and intervention and to be true champions for all our pupils whether disadvantaged or not.

One of our values is ‘to be ambitious’ and this is something we hold true to when creating our strategy for pupil premium. We have the fundamental belief that all children need access to high quality teaching and this forms the heart of our strategy. In addition to this, a strong focus on early identification and support with phonics, reading and language development through a strong early years provision. This way, pupils are caught early to reduce the attainment gap over time between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.

Above all, our pupil premium strategy is based on analysis of the needs of individual pupils and is regularly assessed and reviewed to meet the needs of all of our learners, championing them all to be ambitious and reach their full potential.
