Pupil Premium Strategy for the Academic Year 2016-7

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is an allocation on funding provided to schools to support groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement, including pupils who are or have been entitled to Free School Meals, those looked after by the Local Authority and children of armed service personnel.

All schools are required to publish their strategy for the use of Pupil Premium including amount received and how it is being used. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to determine the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school and  what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.


All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at supporting pupils to overcome these barriers and moving children to at least age related expectations in English and Maths. Pupil Premium will be allocated following analysis of current needs which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.

The impact will be measured annually using progress data for those pupils eligible for Pupil Premium and by seeking feedback from pupils and parents. The strategy will be reviewed September 2017

Barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at Glasshouses School  are:

  • Homework completion where achieving this weekly out of school is  a barrier to  learning
  • Family situations causing barriers to learning through ongoing distress with pupils in need of emotional support, counselling  and development of life skills
  • Access to enrichment opportunities to develop social and emotional skills and improve self esteem where these are barriers to learning
  • Aspects unique to the individual pupil- targeted support for these areas as determined by assessments eg difficulties with Reading
  • Ensuring that low expectations are not a barrier to achievement- not settling for more able pupils only reaching expected levels for their age

For Academic Year 2016-17 our allocation is £15, 800

This will be spent as follows to meet the needs of our eligible pupils:-

  •  ATA hours to ensure that  Pupil Premium pupils receive extra support in Reading, Writing and Mathematics as needed to make good progress and achieve age related expectations or better.
  • ATA intervention programmes including Socially Speaking, Positive People and  provide mentoring for pupils with    emotional and social needs
  • Extra SENCO time to support multi agency working and provide support for teachers
  • After school support -homework, phonics, times tables, spellings
  • Access to enrichment opportunities according to individual need
  • 1:1 teacher support to address gaps in learning
  • ATA family worker  to sign post help available and give practical support and guidance to parents via regular drop in sessions
