Staff CPD

CCC will release teachers to provide further training for staff, support with events and PE lessons and provide guidance if/when needed.


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.

Meeting National Curriculum Requirements for swimming and water safety %
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres: 64%
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively (for example front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke): 30%
What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations: 36%
Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way? Yes 


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 Saints Southwest and we enjoy weekly training and CPD from a highly qualified sporting coach. This year we will be participating in festivals to celebrate what we have learnt during each term as well competing in a variety of sporting tournaments involving other Ventrus schools. 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 Ventrus football tournaments.


We continue to invest in the REAL PE curriculum. We will continue staff training and development as well as buying new resources in order to deliver this high quality teaching.

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