At Stone St. Mary’s we have an on-going ambition to deliver an inspiring and creative curriculum which enriches children's knowledge, skills and enthusiasm. We apply this to our PE curriculum by seeking to ensure that ALL pupils leave Stone St Mary’s physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. While they are at the school they will have access to many opportunities to find their sport and represent their school in a wide range of competitions and after school clubs. We are very active in Dartford Schools and you will be seeing some of our successes on this page soon.


Below are our expectations for the end of each key stage:

End of EYFS Statement:

Children show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements. They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space. They handle equipment and tools effectively, including pencils for writing

Children play co-operatively, taking turns with others. They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity. They show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings, and form positive relationships with adults and other children.

Children are confident to try new activities, and say why they like some activities more than others. They are confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities. They say when they do or don’t need help.

Children know the importance for good health of physical exercise, and a healthy diet, and talk about ways to keep healthy and safe. They manage their own basic hygiene and personal needs successfully, including dressing and going to the toilet independently.


End of Key Stage 1 Statement:

Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns.


End of Key Stage 2 Statement:

Pupils should continue to apply and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement. They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They should develop an understanding of how to improve in different physical activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Pupils should be taught to:

  • use running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination
  • play competitive games, modified where appropriate, such as badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders and tennis, and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending
  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance, for example through athletics and gymnastics
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
On Thursday 19th September we took part in the Dartford District Schools Football Association Fast Fives football tournament for Year 1/2. The students played very well and won every game! I am prouder of the children though for the fact that adults from other schools commented on our children's sportsmanship and behaviour. We received medals from the Chelsea FC coaches who were there to assist with the event. Take a look at the slideshow to see some of the action from the day!
On Friday 20th September we took 9 children (6 boys and 3 girls) to Dartford Football Club for the annual Soccer 6's Festival. The idea of the festival is to give year 3/4 children the chance to represent their school at football and have fun playing a sport against other children. There are no winners of a football festival but I was super impressed with our team who won every game! They played 7 games in total and scored lots of goals but most importantly they did not stop smiling. Well done to all the children who played. smiley

Year 5/6 National Trust (6 a side)

Some of our Year 5 and 6 boys were invited by Dartford FC to take part in the Community National League Trust boys qualifying event on Monday 7th October. We were given a very tough group with the 3 schools playing each other twice. After two wins, a draw and a loss we finished top of the group. We then needed a penalty shootout in the semi-final to decide the game after a 2-2 draw. The boys remained calm and with some great saves from our goalkeeper we won 2-0.

Stone St. Mary's will now play Wentworth on Saturday 16th November on Dartford FC's stadium pitch before the Dartford vs Maidstone United fixture. The winning school will progress into a regional event to represent Dartford Football Club. It would be great to see some of you there to cheer on our team and stay to support your local team! The final of the National competition is played on the pitch at Wembley Stadium - but we are going to take it a game at the time.


Wish us luck!

National League Trust 6-a-side Yr 5/6 Boys Final

I would firstly like to thank all the people who came to cheer us on for this event, especially the staff who gave up their Saturday to cheer us on. It was a great game with both teams playing some amazing football. After going 2-0 down the Stone boys gave a great performance, which had the Wentworth team worried about a come back. After a wonder goal from George we were very unlucky to finish the game with a 2-1 loss. The boys should still be very proud of their achievement of finishing 2nd and we will have many opportunities to try to get a win against Wentworth.

Look out for the Schools Cup and League results on this page.

On the 12th November 2019 we took part in Sportshall Athletics at North Kent College. We took part in a range of events and were very proud of our students efforts. The event is a highlight of the year with children, wo really enjoy the music and the chance to take part in some different events. Which event looks the most fun to you?

On the 22nd November we took part in the annual girls futsal festival at North Kent College. I was really impressed with the girls attitude and the skills that they displayed, despite some of our girls not playing football before. We managed to score quite a few goals - can you spot the picture where the girls are celebrating?
On the 29th November we took six year 3/4 boys to take part in the annual futsal festival. There is no winner but the idea is to get the boys playing against as many schools as they could. We were enjoying it so much we even stayed for part of the afternoon session to make up the numbers after some schools dropped out. Results varied with wins, draws and losses but a great time was had by all. smiley

Year 5/6 Girls Dartford Schools Cup

The girls football team played their first game of the year in the Dartford Schools Cup. For many of the girls this was their first time playing competitive football. The result didn't go as we would have hoped but we saw lots of positives from the performance. The new mantra for the girls team is "don't be so nice". We are hoping for a few better results in the girls league games. 

Year 5/6 Boys - Dartford Schools Cup vs Sutton-at-Hone

In the first round of the cup we were drawn against another of our Trust Schools, Sutton-at-Hone. This was the first full competitive game of the season for the boys and they played very well as a team, with some representing the school for the first time. Stone won the match 6-3 with some great goals by Joel A (hat-trick hero), Joel T, Jayden T and Joey L. We progress onto the next round of the cup! yes

Year 5/6 Boys Cup Match vs Joydens Wood

On Monday 2nd March 2020 we hosted Joydens Wood in the second round of the DPSSA Cup in front of a large audience. Thank you to all the staff, parents, children and visitors who provided a great atmosphere for this memorable match. The boys played a great match and were able to come back from 3-2 down to win 5-3. I am really proud of their teamwork and dedication today, against a tough opposition. The boys now progress to the finals night on the 5th May - so we hope to get lots of support and hopefully reach the final of our second cup competition this year. Wish us luck and check back here for updates! smiley
