Sport at St. Mary's
At St. Mary's we offer a broad and balanced PE curriculum.
Pupils at every key stage benefit from weekly indoor and outdoor PE lessons with their teacher and our sports coaches, which enable them to develop the knowledge, skills, fitness, and techniques needed to engage in a wide variety of sports and games. Our specialist sports coaches also teach children a range of team games both during and after school. After school activities include multi-skills, football, netball, cricket, dance and yoga.
At Key Stage 2 all children have the opportunity to learn how to swim and most reach, and in many cases far exceed, the 25m National Curriculum swimming requirement by the time they leave our school.
Sport, games, gymnastics, dance, exercise and health have a high profile at St. Mary's School. St. Mary's School has previously achieved the Activemark Gold Award in recognition of the excellent standards and range of physical education and physical activity offered to children.
PE in 2020-2021
The children are to come into school in their school PE kit on the days when they have a PE or games lesson. Information for your child's class can be found on your child's class page. Children should be wearing their school tracksuit as well as their PE kit as they will be taking their games lesson outside as long as weather allows and they need to be suitably dressed.
Swimming lessons for schools are currently not taking place but parents will be updated as soon as we have an update.

Football at St. Mary's
The 2020-2021 season has been delayed but may begin at some point during the school year.
At St.Mary's we enter both the girls and boys Lambeth and Southwark primary schools football league. Fixtures are played on Saturdays at one of three venues:
Rosendale Playing Fields - 240 Rosendale Rd, London SE21 8LW
Dulwich Sports Ground - Turney Rd, Dulwich, London SE21 7JH
Alleyn's School - Townley Rd, London SE22 8SU
The boys team is made up predominantly of Year 6 and Year 5 boys but particularly talented Year 4 boys have represented the school in the past.
The girls team often has girls in Year 4 representing the school due to the less physical nature of the league.
