The Safer Lunchtimes Mark

COVID ISN'T OVER FOR SCHOOLS!!

Whether that is via staff absences or pupil bubbles.

The Safer Lunchtimes mark will show you, even with limited staff numbers how you can run an effective lunchtime that is enjoyable and safe for all involved.

We're here to show you how to manage what is the most difficult part of the school day to manage.

A Safer Lunchtime...

Combining the success of our nationally recognised Safer Lunchtimes Mark that came with official guidelines for managing lunchtime, and our hugely successful Better Lunchtimes Mark, we continue to support schools to SAFELY run an organised, enjoyable lunchtime despite the continued challenges schools are still facing with staff absences and pupil bubbles.


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, even with limited numbers.


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

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

“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.”

“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!”
