Pupils should learn a variety of activities in accordance with the subject’s programme of study, including dance and games (at Key Stage 1) and during Key Stage 2 pupils have the opportunity to participate in swimming (Year 5).

At St. Mary’s we believe that the physical development of children is vital in their overall development. The importance of physical wellbeing is cultivated in children in Key Stage 1 through PE lessons, football, and various other activities involving dance and movement. Children in Key Stage 2 are encouraged to get involved in Gaelic football, rugby, tennis, basketball, and cricket, to name a few. There is also an activity club offered after school to children in the Juniors.
