Pupil Premium

Our key objective in using Pupil Premium funding is to improve attainment and close the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their non-disadvantaged peers.

Brambles Primary Academy is part of Tees Valley Education (TVE) Multi-Academy Trust. We are located in east Middlesbrough; an area of significant social and economic deprivation, we are in the lowest percentile for both free school meals with a deprivation indicator of 0.54%

Whilst our context is challenging (around 20% of children have Special Educational Needs and nearly 70% of our pupils are eligible for pupil premium) we believe it is our responsibility to support our children with their life chances, opportunities and employability. Our overall capacity is 315 places (including a 52 place Nursery). We have a two form entry. We provide extended school provision from 8am each day, after school clubs and a variety of activities during Easter & Summer holidays. All of our extended school provision is heavily subsidised, to keep parental costs to a minimum.

We know that nationally, children from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. We actively breakdown those barriers to enable ALL of our children to participate in all activities and therefore achieve age related outcomes, regardless of their social and economic status or family circumstances. Pupil Premium (PP) funding represents a significant proportion of our budget and we are committed to ensuring it is spent to maximum effect.
