PE and Sports Grant 

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 to be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport you offer.  

One of the key aims of our sport and fitness provision at Foxwood for the Primary age children 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 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 25 primary students and a detailed list of how this year’s allocation will be shared as we progress through the academic year on the website. 

At Foxwood Academy we had 29 primary students for the 2018-19 academic year. Foxwood Academy received £16240 of PE and sport premium funding. Details of this expenditure can be found in a separate breakdown along with impact of the spend. 

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 varied mix of sporting activities including horse riding and swimming which both provide an opportunity for the student 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 muscletone and gross and fine motor skills which in turn benefits the students 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 and preparing our students for a fulfilling and active adulthood.
