Netball Success

Congratulations to the two teams we sent to the Purbeck Sports Netball Competition. Our A team won the competition and now progress to the Dorset Games. Our B team came second, only losing to the A team.

Year 4 Handball

A selection of Year 4 pupils represented the school when they took part in the Purbeck School Handball festival. They spent the afternoon working in teams taking part in skill-based games & drills, whilst learning the rules to the game.  The final part to the day was then spent playing matches against other local primary schools within the Purbeck area.

School Games Gold Mark Award

Gold_Logo_JPG.jpgWe are delighted to announce that St Mary’s has achieved the School Games Gold Mark Award for the 2017/18 academic year.

The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

Regular visitors to the website will have seen many of the events that we have attended as part of our commitment to children’s sport and competition.

Congratulations to Mr White, PE coordinator, to all the children who have taken part, and to parents and other members of staff who have contributed their time.
