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.
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.
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.
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.
