Voluntary Controlled (VC) Primary Schools

Primary schools with S4S are entitled to two credits per year. These can be used for visits by their ODBE school's adviser or other members of the team. The nature and focus of these visits will be determined with the headteacher at the start of each academic year to tie in with the School Development Plan and current priorities but can cover the following areas:

  • Leadership support including pastoral care and leadership development at all levels
  • Governance Support
  • RE Adviser Support
  • SIAMS Adviser Support
  • Advice on Headteacher Recruitment for Governing Boards
  • Access to subsidised Continuing Professional Development and Training
  • Collective Worship & Spirituality


The cost has been frozen 2019 - 2022 and remains at £4.75 per pupil. This is subject to a minimum charge of £500 p.a. per school and a maximum of £900 p.a.
