We offer a wide range of clubs at lunchtime and after school, run by either staff or external providers.
The clubs on offer may vary each term. Information is sent home termly and is listed here.
If you wish to take part in a club, please contact the teacher who is running it. Details of external providers, and their costings, are available from the office.
At The Grove we are aware that not all children wish to spend their free time in the same way. Some love running, playing football ,using the Playdale etc, whilst others prefer the quieter activity - reading, sitting in the Friendship Garden or just chatting with their friends.
At both KS1 and KS2 we offer Lunch Bunch Clubs. Invited pupils and staff sit and eat their lunches together, play games and learn good strategies for social interactions. After half a term, or maybe longer if needed, the children then join their peers at lunchtimes to practice all their new skills.
Some children may be presented with a Friendship Garden pass. If a member of staff sees a pupil doing something that is above and beyond, their names will be put forward for this award. Children spend a week at lunchtimes playing chess, or drawing or anything they choose to do. They can take the same friend in everyday or a new one. Their names will be proudly written on the Friendship Board for all to see. The Friendship Garden is a very special place and the children love it.
