Clubs & Activities
There are a wide variety of After School Clubs offered to the children across the year. We recognise the contribution these clubs have to the overall learning opportunities we provide for our children and use our Sports Premium funding to heavily subsidise their cost. If you have any questions regarding after school clubs, please contact the school office.

We offer all our Year 2 children the opportunity to take part in a Change4Life After School Club which focuses on the London 2012 Olympic values:
We use our Sports and PE premium to provide the Year 2 children with the opportunity to go to the Windrush Leisure Centre for swimming lessons in the summer term. Swimming is not part of the PE Key Stage 1 curriculum but at St. Mary's we believe that this is an important life-skill to learn.
Our Forest School sessions are led by Mr Hazel, an experienced Forest School Leader and teacher and our held at Cogges Manor Farm. Throughout the year each child attends five afternoon sessions and are encouraged to work with others to carry out activities such as den/shelter building, role play, explore and carry out practical and creative skills and tasks.
May Day Dancing
Every year St Mary's comes together with The Batt Primary School on the Church Green to perform dances around the maypole and take part in traditional May Day dancing. The children work hard during PE lessons in the summer term to learn these dances.
Each lunchtime between 12.30 - 1.00pm our children are offered the opportunity to attend 'Active Club' where they are able to participate in a range of different activities including basket ball, cricket, athletics and hockey.
The Witney Partnership
We buy into the Witney PE Partnership to enable all our children to participate in PE festivals and tournaments with other local schools. This year our Year 1 children will participate in a Dance festival, Reception will take part in Athletics and Year 2, The Ultra Olympics. These events are delivered by Sports’ Leaders from Henry Box Secondary School.
