Changes to Lunchtimes

Following a review of our lunchtime provision we have introduced a new structure from the beginning of term 1 with split lunches being introduced.  

  • Classes 1 to 3 have a 30 minute lunch break beginning at 12 noon followed by a 30 minute play-time.  
  • Classes 4 to 6 have a 30 minute play-time beginning at 12 noon followed by a 30 minute lunch break.    

As a result of the changes we now have a higher staff to pupil supervision ratio in the playground and hall.  Existing children have coped well with these changes.  Classroom staff supervise throughout the 1 hour lunch break with support from our MDSA Team in the hall.
