We work in collaboration with other schools in the area to provide our children with as wide a range of opportunities as possible. Regular sporting events are organised between clusters of local schools as well as music, art and other curricular events to ensure a rich and varied experience for all our pupils. We also attend many events at Clyst Vale Community College, where we are able to use sporting facilities and access coaching opportunities. Our teachers also work with staff from other local schools to coordinate provision for SEN, moderate work and share professional development opportunities.
Silverton C of E Primary School is also a member of The Exeter Consortium – a group of over 30 schools, Primary and Secondary who work together to provide School to School support:

This partnership gives staff access to a wider range of training and professional development opportunities.
