The Great Outdoors

At St Loys we recognise the benefits to children’s physical and mental well-being when opportunities are presented for learning outdoors. We are fortunate to be situated in a rural location where we can actively engage with our physical education, including walks, gardening and outdoor PE.

Our allotment is home to our Gardening Club and all pupils have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of tending to this.

The Daily Mile

We have recently joined the Daily Mile initiative and our pupils are maintaining their enthusiasm for their run, walk or jog each day….for more info see https://thedailymile.co.uk/

Lego Club

Lego Club is a lunchtime club run by older children in the school.  

Each Wednesday lunchtime, 12 children from that term’s chosen class (Reception, Year 1/2 or Year 3/4) come up to Lego Club.  Every week, there is a different building challenge and a special winner (who receives a trophy in Friday’s sharing assembly).

Extra-Curricular Activities

We aim to provide as wide a range of activities as is practical in a small school and are very fortunate to have a purpose-built, for multi-use, hall (which was built to Sports England requirements and is the size of an International Badminton Court). We also have the use of the nearby large Millennium Field in the village.

St Loys run a Morning and an After School Club each weekday, please contact the office for details of sessions and charges.
