Arundel CofE Primary School

Lunchtimes and Breaks

At ACE we work very hard to provide a positive experience for our children at lunchtime.

In order to ensure that lunchtime is a relaxed and calm experience for our children, lunchtimes in the school hall are divided between KS1 children who eat first at 12.00pm, followed by KS2 children who go to lunch at 12.30pm.

Our lunchtime supervisors encourage the children to eat and drink healthily and to try new things. They are also there to help and support the youngest members of our school for whom eating in a school hall will be a new experience.

Outside we have a range of toys and equipment to facilitate exercise, social interaction and fun. We also have two outdoor activity areas and are very lucky to have a very large playing field on which the children are encouraged to play during the dry months. Our playgrounds are ready for a range of activities. Some using pre-painted templates on the surface, other giant free-standing games (such as Connect 4 and chess with large scale pieces), come out as required,  Our lunchtime supervisors join the children during playtime outside and are always on hand to support and play with the children.
