Sport at St Mary's
PE at St Mary’s, Purton Primary School develops a fun, high quality physical education curriculum. Our curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel individual’s abilities in competitive sports and other physically demanding activities. We build character and help to embed British and school values such as tolerance and respect. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident, develop resilience in a way which supports their health, fitness and mental wellbeing. Children are encouraged to persevere with activities that may be once have felt too difficult. We are passionate about the need to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equity of play to embed life-long values.
‘Find your greatness and let it shine’
We value the contribution sport and fitness make to our lives. Sport builds on the values we hold dear at St Mary's, such as inclusion, team work, having a positive self image and striving to achieve.
There are many afterschool clubs which have a sport and fitness focus and children regularly participate in inter-school events. St Mary's has two Football Teams (Girls and Boys), and a Netball Team who compete in the Cluster Netball League.
Every summer, St Mary's holds its popular sports day in which all children participate and achieve.
Swimming takes place annually for Year 3 with the aim of ensuring all children are competent and safe when in the water. UPDATE 2021/2022 - Due to COVID Year 4 will be swimming for half the school year, followed by Year 3 swimming from February to July 2022.

St Mary's is passionate about enabling children to be fit and healthy in their body and mind as possible. We use the Steps to Summit scheme to encourage the children to be as active as possible. The scheme records the children's daily activity as they summit their year groups allocated mountain.
