Active Lunchtimes - Secondary Schools

Why do we need it?

  • The partnership audit showed that a significant number of schools found lunchtimes could be a problem for some students, which can lead to those pupils finding it difficult to then settle back into the classroom in the afternoon.
  • Some schools also reported a high number of behavioural incidents occurred at lunch times.
  • Lunch time activities can also help address the inactivity of some students, so enabling schools to work towards the governments target of two hours high quality PE and school sport per school week.

What is it?

  • Four activities are on offer, speed stacking, table tennis, extreme golf and OAA problem solving. (These can be changed in discussion with Frances & Kim)

Target Group

  • Key stage three and/or four.
  • Those students who are either in a special school or on a special curriculum.
  • Those students who maybe find break times difficult, due to poor communication and a lack of social skills.
