Lunchtime Arrangements

Lunchtime is an important part of the school day and we are looking at how we can improve the experience for our pupils. Our current arrangements see all pupils having their lunch break from 1.20pm until 2pm; this leads to a very busy 40 minutes where pupils comment on queues and not always being able to find a seat.

We are looking at trialing split lunches. This would mean that the school would be divided into two lunch sittings so that only half would be eating at anyone time. One potential model is shown below (this is one of many possibilities). Split lunches would; reduce the number of pupils having lunch at one sitting by 50%, give the opportunity for pupils to sit down and reduce queues. As well as the practicalities of dining, evidence suggests that pupils are more likely to eat a healthy lunch if they can sit down and afternoon learning improves. Sixth Form students would be able to access lunch at either sitting.
