Happy, Healthy Lunchtimes

At Christ Church Primary School, our vision of 'Aspiring together through love' encompasses arrangements for lunchtime. Activities on offer give all pupils opportunity to make choices for them selves as they grow and flourish together both physically and socially.


Children dine together with friends in their class and can choose a hot or cold school dinner or bring a packed lunch from home. Our teaching assistants supervise and support during this time, particularly with teaching new skills such as using cutlery.  Our Lunchtime Arrangements and School Food policy can be found in the 'Policies' tab.


All children spend time outside during their lunchbreak. Zoned areas offer both adult led and independent activities, designed to engage and motivate all children and support skill development. Our sports coach leads competitive sport activities, non-competitive sporting games are organised and we have an adventure trail. For children who prefer quieter activities, table top games and activities such as Lego are on offer, and of course there’s always a bench to sit and read a good book or chat with friends.

Healthy Lunchbox Week

We promote Healthy Lunchbox weeks throughout the year where children are rewarded for making healthier choices in their packed lunch, or for trying something new on their hot dinner plate. Each term, children and their families are encouraged to consider a specific focus, shown below:
