We are now on half term break. We look forward to seeing everyone on Monday, 2nd November.

Clubs, Opportunities & Enrichment

‘Together we learn, believe and achieve’

School Clubs: 

We usually offer a variety of activities and clubs for different groups of children; these form a vital part of our enrichment co-curriculum, giving children the opportunity to meet new friends in different age groups, work in teams, learn new skills, challenge themselves and compete in a friendly environment and also to develop their own leadership skills. 

In line with the Government Guidance for Autumn 2020, we are minimising the number of contacts for children and staff, trying to keep the children safe in 4 main groups. This restricts the opportunities for clubs, so none of our usual offer will be possible in September. We hope that the situation will change soon, so that we can safely offer clubs including:

Lego, Strategy, Colouring, Construction, Cross-Country, Netball.

 

A number of external clubs are coaches offer before or after-school clubs, but these too are 'on hold' for COVID-19. We very much hope that these clubs can safely resume soon too: Football, Fencing, Athletics, Tennis, Hockey, Cricket, Rugby.

There is a strong musical heritage at Chevening and all aspects of Music continue to play an enormous part of our daily lives in school, whether arising in daily worship, class topics, or performances on the playground! We enjoy the opportunities to perform, dance, celebrate and remember through music and song.

We are fortunate to have a dedicated Music Room, which is great for instrumental lessons, choir rehearsals (but a little too small for our orchestra!)

 

An enormous thank you to the PTA who very kindly funded the purchase of 6 new large Djembe drums. The new drums greatly enhance the quality of sound and experience during drumming sessions both in the classroom. 

Swimming

We are fortunate to be able to offer regular swimming lessons for all children, usually in Term 6.

 

Parents, please ensure you follow our Health & Safety guidelines:

  • Please ensure that all items of clothing, goggles, towels, bags etc are clearly named
  • Please can all swimmers bring in a plastic bag for their wet clothes.
  • Please can all swimmers adjust their goggles at home in the bath, to make sure they fit correctly, prior to using them in school
  • For Health & Safety, Swimmers are not allowed to wear jewellery, including earrings, during swimming lessons. These should not be worn on swimming days, as no responsibility will be taken by the School should they go missing
  • Boys must wear swimming trunks, not board shorts as these hinder movement in the water.  Girls must wear swimming costumes, not bikinis.
  • All swimmers must wear swimming hats in the water
  • Please ensure that if your swimmer has a verruca, it is sealed with Bazuka, Compound W ( or similar freeze application) to prevent spread. Likewise, if they are known to have a fungal infection, please ensure they wear a plastic swimming sock to prevent cross-infection.

All swimming lessons are delivered by a fully qualified, licensed swimming instructor and are supervised by qualified lifesavers. Swimming will take place regardless of the weather, with the exception of during thunderstorms. However, if it is very cold, discretion will be used especially with KS1, as to whether or not to swim and for how long.

 

The PTA requests a parental donation, per child, to fund the coaching, lifeguard training, heating, water and maintenance of the pool. Sufficient donations are needed to ensure swimming can proceed in Term 6.
