Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium at Portslade Aldridge Community Academy: 2019/20 Evaluation and 2020/21 Strategy


What is Pupil Premium funding?

Pupil Premium Funding (PFF) was introduced by the government in April 2011 as a means of addressing underlying inequalities between students eligible for free school meals and those from wealthier backgrounds. The funding may be spent by schools however they wish but schools must demonstrate the impact the funding is having on its Pupil Premium (PP) students. The term ‘disadvantaged’ is now used for students who are eligible for the Pupil Premium. Students are referred to as ‘disadvantaged’, pupil premium and PP students interchangeably within this document. Non PP students are those who are not eligible for PP funding.
