School policies, premium statements and reports on our school cover every aspect of school life at GBP. Below are some of our most important policies, reports and statements for your reference.
If you want to know our policy, practice or procedure on something that is not listed, please ask the school office.
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and paid to local authorities by a grant based on the January census figures for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) in Reception to Year 11. It is allocated for children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings. For FSM and looked after children, school receives funding.
Please register your child if you are eligible using the easy online facility which has been launched by Hampshire County Council Catering Services (HC3S). You can now check your eligibility for FSM. This self-service option is available at:
For this online service, all you need to do is enter your name, National Insurance number or Asylum number, address and your child’s details. Then press submit and find out if you are eligible. If the result comes back found, this means your child is eligible for FSM and the system automatically tells the school. You no longer have to find the paperwork and go into school to get it checked. As from April 2012, the Government has widened the coverage of the Premium to include those eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
Schools decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since it is recognised that they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
