A wide variety of extra curricular activities are provided both at lunchtime and after school. These include football, netball, summer sports, choir, art club and drama club. Out of school visits, as well as workshops and performances from experts, are organised to enrich and support the curriculum.
The children will follow a programme of work which is based on their gradual progression through the Foundation Stage (early years class) and then through each subject within the Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum. This is now augmented by the requirements of the national Literacy andNumeracy strategies and your child will be provided with activities appropriate to their particular level within each Key Stage. (St Mary's covers the Foundation Stage, Key Stages 1 and 2.) Our aim is for every child to progress as far as possible within the National Curriculum framework prior to its transfer to the secondary sector. Children are offered a range of educational opportunities covering the academic, creative, sporting, spiritual and social aspects of a child's development. The highest possible standards are expected from each child in every aspect of school life. The school has a policy of providing a stimulating and caring learning environment to ensure that all our children realise their full potential.
