Lower Fields Primary Academy is a larger than average primary academy, with 449 pupils currently on roll, ranging from Nursery to Year 6.
Currently 142 pupils (31.6%) are entitled to Pupil Premium compared to 23.5% nationally.
ASP 2018 shows that the school deprivation indicator is higher than the national average at 0.43 (top 20%). Lower Fields Primary Academy serves the East Bradford area. The stability of the academy population is decreasing and there is an increased level of transiency due to the large number of privately rented properties which are now available in the catchment area. This change in stability means that pupils are currently being admitted more frequently within the academic year, many of whom are vulnerable; have challenging behaviour or are working below national expectations.
