Sports Premium


Sports Premium Information

"The PE and sport premium funding is used well
to provide pupils with expert specialist teaching and also to help
teachers to improve their practice."

Our Vision

At St. Mary’s we want our children to lead healthy, active lives, be physically confident and recognise their own successes. We hope to achieve this by providing a range of enjoyable activities and opportunities through a high quality curriculum. Specialist teachers visit the school and teach all children on a weekly basis. We are also part of the North Herts School Sports Partnership, which provide the children with professional coaching sessions and access to a variety of festivals and competitions with other local schools.
