Curriculum PE

As part of our Exeter Primary stars programme we work with over 100 children each day. Our coaches work closely with teachers to help them gain confidence and develop their skills in delivering a wide-ranging and balanced PE curriculum. We have in place, and can create our own schemes of work to grow pupils’ physical literacy (their agility, balance and coordination) as well as their everyday life skills.


·         We can provide:An affordable solution to PPA cover, using a minimum of Level 2-qualified coaches and staff;

·         A range of sports and games on offer, including hockey, netball, rugby, football, tennis, cricket, rounders and athletics and more

·         Schemes of work and lesson plans based on the National Curriculum

Cross Curricular

We also use football as a vehicle to support pupils who need to improve their numeracy and literacy skills. We use players statistics, stadium attendances and transfer fees a few methods to engage and develop pupils knowledge.

We also use the vast array of football literature available to us, whether it be a simulated post-match conference, written transfer request or half time team talk. These sessions are aimed at pupils who need that little extra support and will also be rewarded by the end of the programme, which tends to last 6-10 weeks.


School sport competitions

Combined with our PE delivery and after school sports clubs, we run a number of inter-schools competitions of your choice, we have previously delivered the likes of handball, football, futsal and netball encouraging pupils to work on the 4 c’s, communication, collaboration, competition and collaboration skills used in everyday life.

Please see the Tournaments section of our site for forthcoming events.


Enrichment days at the Park

We host collapsed curriculum days for schools covering subject areas like numeracy or literacy. We also run healthy eating themed days,
or workshops aimed at improving pupils’ confidence and nurturing their ambitions.

+Sport, Move and Learn - Primary School years 5


CITY Community Trust in partnership with EFL Trust and Ferrero UK deliver the Joy of Moving programme to thousands of school children across Devon.

According to research only 30% of boys and 25% of girls aged 5-7 meet the recommended quota of exercise each day. Such inactivity levels are leading to a variety of issues affecting both physical and mental health.

The Joy of Moving programme is designed to help children develop their physical, cognitive and social skills in a fun and educational way. This is done through two national projects, Move & Learn programme and the Joy of Moving Festivals that engage 70,000 children nationwide each year. 


The Move and Learn Programme is a national school-based educational programme for children aged between 9-10 that has been developed by the EFL Trust and Ferrero.

By combining six weeks of practical sporting sessions with classroom sessions, the programme encourages physical activity, promotes nutritional education and builds awareness of the importance of a balanced diet and active lifestyle.


Our Joy of Moving Festivals compliment the Move and Learn Programme. Taking place predominantly in the Summer term, the Joy of Moving Festivals involves the full school from reception all the way through to Year 6, and even the teachers!

The Festivals help develop each child in five major areas: physical fitness, motor (bodily) coordination, cognitive functions, creativity (mental reasoning), and life skills.

The Festivals first piloted in 2018 reaching out to hundreds of schools nationwide engaging thousands of children aged 4-11.
