All children receive a range of PE and Games activities in order to develop skills, techniques and rules so by the time they leave the school they have a good understanding of football, tag rugby, cricket, rounders, high five netball and athletics.
The school has a hall which is fully equipped for gymnastics and agility development along with an all weather pitch allowing development of game skills and tactics.
Through these experiences the children are able to compete with each other or at inter school competitions and tournaments.
The school offers a range of clubs for the children to join using both the skills of the staff and other sports coaches from a range of sources.
Parents are asked to support the school by ensuring their child has the appropriate clothing for sport activities and by supporting the inter school activities.
Review of the Netball season
This season at St Mary's we have won 6 matches, drew 1 match and lost 1 match.
All members of the team have made a big difference in having successful results.
A big thank you to our netball coaches: Miss Willis, Mrs Kirkham and Miss O'Sullivan.
Our team this year included:
Layla, Scarlett, Mia, Mollie, Rebecca, Milly, Martha, Blue, Samuel, William, Oliver, Alfie and Alex.
Here are some words from the players, "we've gone so far and improved so much, well done St Mary's."

Review of the Football season
Overall, St Mary's Football team, during the 2017/18 season have been really successful by winning multiple games against the following schools: Elsenham, Great Chesterford, Chrishall and Henham. But unfortunately we have lost a really tough game against, Birchanger, ending the match with a score of 5-4.
We also have competed in a football tournament playing against local schools, where we came 2nd in our group and 3rd in the whole competition.
Hopefully, the future year 5 and 6 can learn from our experiences and keep up the successful work. We wish them the best for next year.
