Barriers to educational achievement

Pupils at Bredbury Green Primary School and Resourced Nursery reside within Bredbury Green and Romiley ward.  43% of our children live within the most deprived areas in Stockport. Barriers to learning for our pupil premium children include:

 

  • Attainment on entry to the EYFS is below National Average
  • There is a high level of need for family support
  • Attendance, whilst improving is still below the National Average
  • A high percentage of children have an EHCP, a Statement or a SEND support plan
  • There is a significant proportion of children in school with identified SEMH concerns
