PE & The Arts

Excellent facilities exist for a wide range of physical activities. The hall is well equipped for physical education; there is a full size netball court in the grounds and the nearby village playing fields are used for football and other sports needing a broad green expanse. We are fortunate to have a professional sports coach (Mr Paul Dolton) who teaches all the children from Y1-6 for at least one PE session per week. He also runs some, popular, before and after school clubs for the children. The school regularly competes against other local schools in a wide variety of sporting competitions.

Art, music and drama play an important part in school life. All children will take part in at least two productions during their school life at St Mary’s. At present all children from Year 3 to 6 receive some musical instrument tuition in addition to class music lessons. The school is keen to encourage music experiences and we are planning a music concert in the summer term and took part in the Christmas ‘Big Sing’.
