The Happy Lunchtimes Award
Heads like the happy lunchtimes award because it gives pupils and staff a clear structure to focus on positive play and positive behaviour management. It enthuses everyone and leads to many improvements big and small.
Mid-day staff like the award because it addresses their priorities and is all based on practical ideas that have been proven to work in other schools. Staff often comment ‘You understand all the challenges of our work.’ It helps improve behaviour, and has a focus on positive lunchtimes for all the children.
Pupils like the award because it is based on their views, and provides a wider range of activities at lunchtime with something for every different ‘play-type.’ It also creates a calmer and more consistent approach to discipline, and has ‘something for everyone.’
“Very informative. Lots and lots of info to make lunchtimes more fun. Steve had lots of enthusiasm and was very positive. Helpful ideas for games and improving behaviour.”
