Staff CPD


The teaching of PE is consistently good across the school.

Teachers feel more confident to deliver a broad and balanced skills based curriculum.


All children are offered the opportunity to go swimming every year at local swimming pools, for a small voluntary contribution towards transportation, pool hire and qualified swimming instructors.

Some of our Sports Funding goes towards making up the difference between the amount of voluntary contributions and the actual cost of the activity. This funding has enabled every child across the school to attend swimming lessons regardless of their current swimming abilities.  


The money helps finance part coach transportation to and from a variety of sporting events within the county. We are able to attend all of these sports events without having to rely on parents to provide their own transportation.

Wider Opportunities/Collaborative Partnerships

As part of the School Sports Partnership Programme, the funding has allowed us to participate fully in a number of CVSA, CCC, Ventrus sporting initiatives and East Devon sporting events, competed at local, area and county level in different disciplines.

Additional coaches

The funding has enabled us to forge strong links with the Arsenal Soccer Schools Programme and we have enjoyed weekly training and CPD from a highly qualified sporting coach. This external coaching provision allowed us to identify our most talented footballers and form an elite football squad who received additional weekly coaching and successfully participated in a number of Ventrus football tournaments.


The funding has helped pay for teachers and HLTAs to further their knowledge both through courses and INSET. We have also purchased the ‘Real PE’ programme which provides fun and simple Schemes of Work and support for EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 practitioners that give them the confidence and skills to deliver outstanding PE. It is fully aligned to the new National Curriculum and Ofsted requirements and focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning through a unique and market leading approach to teaching and learning in PE.
