Active Schools

In 2023 St Mary’s obtained the Active Schools flag. This flag is an initiative to encourage children to become more active in their daily lives. Sixty minutes of physical activity every day is recommended for children.


As a whole school, we try to give the children lots of different opportunities to experience a range of physical activities. At the end of every term we go on a whole- school themed walk (Spooky Walk, Santa Dash and Easter March). As part of being an ‘Active Flag School,’ we build community- school links and get parents involved too. Every year, we have an ‘Active Week,’ which includes Sports Day.
