Please see the school uniform page for an updated list of PE kit, and a change to the requirements from September 2019.
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.
Congratulations to the indoor athletics squad who came second in the Purbeck & Christchurch competition, and to the girls squad who were first overall in their section.
A reminder that PE hoodies are a kit requirement for KS2 children for PE lessons.
They are available to purchase through our online shop with Purbeck Embroidery for £12.50. Please see below link to their website for more information.
Members of the school council went to Durlston for the first day of Beat the Street for Purbeck and Poole.
We won! Today saw the St Mary’s Yr 5 & 6 football team bring home the Purbeck Cup.
Congratulations to all the triumphant players and to Mr White. Thank you to the tournament organiser and sponsor, and all the supporters through the (long!) season.
St Mary’s y4 football team won the Swanage Shield local tournament after an exciting final where they beat St Mark’s 4-2.
We 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.
Congratulations to our year 4s, 5s and 6s who took part in the Dorset School Games. What a brilliant day!
A big thank you to the Swanage crew from Dorset Fire & Rescue who visited St Mary’s this morning. They joined in our whole-school morning run then showed us round (and through!) their amazing offroad fire engine.
