Active Lunchtimes - Secondary Schools

Why do we need it?

  • The partnership audit showed that a significant number of schools found lunchtimes could be a problem for some students, which can lead to those pupils finding it difficult to then settle back into the classroom in the afternoon.
  • Some schools also reported a high number of behavioural incidents occurred at lunch times.
  • Lunch time activities can also help address the inactivity of some students, so enabling schools to work towards the governments target of two hours high quality PE and school sport per school week.

What is it?

  • Four activities are on offer, speed stacking, table tennis, extreme golf and OAA problem solving. (These can be changed in discussion with Frances & Kim)

Target Group

  • Key stage three and/or four.
  • Those students who are either in a special school or on a special curriculum.
  • Those students who maybe find break times difficult, due to poor communication and a lack of social skills.

What the Partnership Provides

  • A sportspack of speed stacks (set of 20)
  • 16 table tennis paddles & Pack of Table Tennis Balls.
  • Extreme golf bag & extra extreme golf balls
  • Table tennis table (if this was identified in the audit)
  • Honorarium payment for the identified member of staff who will oversee the programme.
  • One member of staff may attend the extreme golf training.
  • Up to two members of staff may attend the speed stacking training.

What the School Provides

  • Commitment to run the programme.
  • Identify a suitable member of staff.
  • A suitable space for the activities.
