PE and Sports Grant 

 

**Unfortunately, many of the sporting activities that we usually enjoy have been unavailable in 2020 and 2021. This is due to Lockdown restrictions and the need to socially distance. This has been difficult for our pupils who look forward to activities like Horse-riding and the Active Gym. Though we have been creative and provided extra opportunities for active play and sensory stimulation within the school campus, it has been a difficult time and we are looking forward to resuming our usual active curriculum.**

 

Most schools with Primary aged students receive the Primary Sport Premium. The amount is calculated based upon the number of students aged 5-10 on role. This funding is used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport we offer.  

One of the key aims of our sport and fitness provision at Primary students at Foxwood is to encourage participation and enthusiasm, and to begin to develop an engagement with exercise that can grow throughout the student’s school career. We do this by providing a wide range of activities that children of all abilities can participate in. Football club and the Boccia tournament are usually available as lunchtime clubs providing the students with a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. 

The Primary Sports Funding, we receive as an Academy enables us to provide the students with a range of more adventurous activities too. It provides funding for travel to and from horse riding sessions which are led by RDA (Riding for the Disabled Association), swimming sessions at Bramcote Leisure Centre led by qualified instructors, and also the cost of maintaining and updating appropriate PE equipment and resources to ensure that all students can access PE activities. 

We are able to provide additional training to our staff that deliver physical activity to the Primary Students to ensure high quality sessions that are consistent across the phase.  

This year at Foxwood Academy we will have 27 primary students and were allocated £16,270 of PE and Sport Premium funding. 

The primary pupils at Foxwood Academy have a range of abilities and vary in their levels of mobility. It is important to provide them with a variety of sporting activities such as Horse riding and Swimming which both provide an opportunity for students to participate in a supported way. The use of qualified professionals to lead the sessions alongside staff ensures that the students are receiving provision of the highest quality. The sensory opportunities offered by horse riding and swimming enhance the enjoyment of sporting activity and can often contribute to the development of language or communication skills. Sport contributes to the development of muscle tone and gross and fine motor skills which supports learning in other areas of the curriculum. 

Providing the students with this varied mixture of active sessions allows all students to find something they enjoy and gives opportunities for them to find their strengths. Fostering this love of an active lifestyle now prepares our students for a fulfilling and active adulthood.
