Government PE Grant 

Academic Year 2016-2017

We received £9204 for 2016-17. 

We have used this to provide specialist PE coaching in swimming, gymnastics, tennis and football,  improved extra-curricular opportunities and staff having access to high quality continuing professional development.


All of our children within the school have access to high quality specialist coaching for tennis and gymnastics. Teaching staff and assistants support the coaches and gain valuable skills and knowledge within a specialist area.  This ensures that this high quality provision is sustainable.

The children walk to the local tennis club for their tuition and become familiarized with the setting.  Many of the children go on to join the club and are playing tennis after school, weekends and school holidays.  Our year 2 pupils are often successful at local competitions.

The school offers a wide range of after school clubs which are all free of charge.  The PE Grant funds an Exeter City Football Club which is popular.

Our heated swimming pool is used during the summer term and up until the end of October.  All children, including nursery children, swim weekly. The swimming lessons are delivered by class teachers that have had appropriate training.  Free after school swimming cubs are also offered – these are well attended.
