Our Fab Lunchtimes

What happens during lunchtimes since Covid-19?

At Rolleston Primary School we have a team of lunchtime staff who ensure everyone is safe, happy and having fun! The children stay in their year groups, eat lunch in the dinner hall and then go and play outside on the playgrounds. 


The dinner hall

In the dinner hall children having packed lunches and children having hot dinners all sit and eat together in their year groups. We have 3 sittings over lunchtime to ensure children are seated in year groups and so we can clean the tables between each sitting. Hot meals are served to the children at the tables by staff. Lunchtime staff give out Dojos to children for showing good behaviour and manners.


The playground

The children stay with their year group for their time on the playground. Each year group has a nominated lunchtime supervisor who collects the children from the dinner hall and takes them to the playground. We have dedicated bags of sport kit that are available to use with groups.  


Positive People group

We have a new group at lunchtime called Positive People to help build social skills, turn taking and build self-esteem and confidence and most importantly HAVE FUN!

Playpod Zone - a large selection of loose parts ranging from pipes, tubes, tyres, clothes, wigs, bags, boxes and more!

Mrs Robinson has been working hard with our Playground Leaders this term getting them ready to support our children at lunchtime.
