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.
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:
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.
