The Safer Lunchtimes Mark - COVID-19

Combining the success of our Social Distancing Lunchtime Guidance and our hugely successful Better Lunchtimes Mark, our experienced team has been working with schools to successfully implement the Safer Lunchtimes Mark since September 2020.

The Safer Lunchtimes Mark programme has ensured that schools can confidently support all pupils in having the healthy, enjoyable and nurturing lunchtime experience they need to flourish – despite recent events having disrupted their routines.

The Safer lunchtimes Mark supports your lunch team by providing a more relaxed and enjoyable working environment and optimising their presence in both the dining space and on the playground.

Through visiting your school, we will work with you as the school leaders to establish a Safer and Better Lunchtime, whilst providing you with solutions to the challenges you are facing.

 
 

What does a Safer Lunchtime Look Like? 

Staggered & time efficient lunchtimes, that consider social distancing

Clear & Safe Movement for pupil bubbles, around school with no queues

Confident and efficiently allocated staff indoors and outside

Well zoned, suitable activities that promote activity & development

A Safer Lunchtime...

From our experience of working to improve hundreds of lunchtimes, we know that they can be a particularly challenging time of the day.


But now, more than ever, it is important to ensure pupils and staff feel safe and happy during this time.

In March 2020, we created Social Distancing Lunchtime Guidance which over 1400 schools across the UK used to embed Safer Lunchtimes during the summer term.

But, with all pupils returning to school, providing an enjoyable and safe lunchtime experience, within the constraints of pupil bubbles can be tricky.

Safer Lunchtimes #1

One Visit

In which we visit your school and take in all the required information during one lunchtime. Including a comprehensive report, debrief same-day solutions and an action plan.



How it works?

  • You’ll be sent an initial pre-audit document

  • We’ll observe the whole of lunchtime (both indoors and out) following a chat with you/ your senior leaders

  • We’ll then debrief you – providing real-time, on the day feedback that you can implement right away

  • We’ll compile an action plan, detailing how you can simply improve every aspect of lunchtime

  • You’ll get your Safer Lunchtimes Mark through the post once completed!

What others have said! 

"Our Lunchtimes are so much better now. Children are enjoying sitting in a calm lunch hall and the playgrounds are organised!"

Oaklands Primary

“The biggest change we have seen at lunchtimes is through the feedback from pupils and parents. They tell us that they now love lunchtimes, the opportunity to have responsibility through being a Lunchtime Monitor and the family dining experience in the hall. Parents tell us that their children talk enthusiastically about lunchtimes and some children who had never tried the school lunch option before are now regularly eating school dinners. It has involved a lot of work but the whole experience has been a huge success.”

Freegrounds Infant School

“Brilliant use of money which has transformed how we work in a very tangible way and all our children have benefited and the staff are so proud of what they have achieved together. I love showing people what we’ve done!”
