Clubs at St Mary's

Sports Clubs

At St Mary’s we encourage active participation in sport and physical activity throughout the curriculum. We also offer a range of before and after school, and lunch-time, sports clubs for children in Year 1 through to Year 6. The clubs are divided into Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Clubs vary on a termly basis and parents are notified towards the end of one term what sports clubs will be available for the next term. Parents complete a reply slip stating which club their child would like to take part in. The cost of the club is dependent on the number of children who wish to take part.

The clubs are run by professional coaches who come into school to run the sessions.

Orchestra Club

Working with Suffolk County Music Service, we also offer the opportunity of musical instrument lessons for Key Stage 2 children. These usually include the violin, flute, clarinet, or brass.  The commitment is for a whole academic year, one lesson a week, and the cost is determined by County Music Service who provide the music teachers to come into school to take the lessons. If your child is interested in learning to play a musical instrument, please contact the school office. 

The school also runs an orchestra club on a Thursday after school from 3.30pm-4.15pm for children that have been playing their instrument for at least 1 year.

Wraparound Care

St Mary's Wrap Around Care Provision Information

The aim of St Mary's wrap around provision is to provide a high-quality wrap around care. We will provide a small breakfast and a light snack at the beginning/end of their school day.

The children are encouraged to be fully involved in the running of the clubs and are regularly consulted regarding which activities they prefer and whether they have any ideas or suggestions for improvement. Your comments are also welcome, so please feel free to let us know your views.
