Brambles Primary Academy is a larger than average-sized primary school, serving an area of significant deprivation and generational poverty. Over 97% of the children attending are in the lowest 3% of poverty nationally, therefore, the pastoral, welfare and inclusion offer is equally as important as an excellent curriculum. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium is more than three times the national average.
