Well being Lunch Clubs

Home » Health and Well-being » Well being Lunch Clubs

Each week, all the children in years 1-6 will spend one lunchtime (30 mins) with a key adult engaging in the social situation of eating lunch together and taking part in meaningful conversation.

Why do we do this and what do we want to achieve for our children?
Our aim is to develop and secure the social, emotional and mental well-being of all our children.
How:

  • Let every child know they matter
  • Give every child a voice
  • Encourage self-belief and for each child to know that they have someone who believes in them
  • Build each child's confidence to use their voice and share their problems
  • Give each child someone who will listen to them (other than their teacher/teaching assistant)
  • Make each child feel safe
  • Ensure each child enjoys the time they share together and has fun
  • Provide the children with strategies to 'cope' with tricky or difficult situations
  • Each child is well-known to adults beyond the classroom
  • Build each child's friendship groups across the school

    Why?
    ...because we all matter
