Extra-Curricular Activities

Members of staff are currently running a wide range of extra-curricular activities for the children of St Martin’s. These include:

  • A range of sporting activities (football, tag rugby, athletics, cross-country, netball, tennis, cricket)
  • Numeracy
  • Literacy
  • Choir
  • Digital Leaders
  • Lunch-time activities
  • Gymnastics
  • Dance and Exercise
  • Homework Club

As well as partaking in physical activities children also have the opportunity to reflect on healthy eating and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. For some activities we approach particular children and encourage them to take part as well as opening it up to all pupils. We also run outdoor and indoor lunch-time activities.

Music: As well as meeting the demands of the National Curriculum for Music we promote music creativity throughout the school. We run a very successful choir and peripatetic staff visit the school each week to give violin, cello, flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, guitar and percussion lessons and parents are notified when vacancies for the various instruments occur. Each year we hold a concert for parents so that the children who partake in the above activities can celebrate their achievements and perform to a live audience.
