About the PE and sport premium
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health at Fox Grove, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that our pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits such as improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.
The PE and sport premium can help Fox Grove School to achieve this commitment, providing funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport.
Fox Grove publishes evidencing the impact of the Primary PE & Sport Premium at the end of July every academic year.
About the Pupil Premium
Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils at Fox Grove School. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.
Fox Grove School publishes our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement for the current academic year by 31st December. Our Pupil Premium Strategy plans details a clear statement of intent, aims and barriers to overcome to guide the planned expenditure of Pupil Premium and Recovery Funding. This enables our disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils to achieve positive outcomes in line with their peers.
The Pupil Premium Strategy Statement details the impact that our Pupil Premium activity had on pupils within the previous academic year.
Recovery Premium Funding
The recovery premium grant is part of the government’s package of funding to support pupils whose education has been impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19). It is a time-limited grant providing additional funding and this will be reported back by the Pupil Premium Stategy Statement.
It is focused on pupil premium eligible pupils and pupils in specialist settings such as special schools, such as Fox Grove. This is because of the additional impact of the pandemic on these students.
