Staff CPD


The teaching of PE is will continue to be consistently good across the school.

The school has invested in the REAL PE curriculum which will improve the staff’s confidence and subject knowledge. This also includes high quality resources across the year groups.


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, PAT 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 enjoy weekly training and CPD from a highly qualified sporting coach. This external coaching provision allows us to identify our most talented footballers and form an elite football squad who receive additional weekly coaching and participate in a number of PAT football tournaments.

We also have the ‘A Chance to Shine’ cricket coaching programme running in the summer term. This opportunity arose from the local cricket club in a bid to raise the uptake of young players in the community.

CPD - Real PE 

Following on from last year’s investment in the REAL PE curriculum we will continue staff training and development as well as buying fantastic new resources in order to deliver this high quality teaching.

Including in this expenditure is the lead PE teacher attending termly local community meetings to share practice, ideas and developments.

Ventrus MAT
