We help schools develop clear lunchtime behaviour expectations based on their own rules and values. This involves Midday Supervisors working with school council to identify and agree what rules they are happy to follow.
Children usually behave very well in the classroom. They are clear about behaviour expectations and know their school rules. But at lunchtime some children do not behave so well. That is because there is a misperception that rules do not apply at lunchtime. As a result, children know they are unlikely to get a consequence for poor behaviour (e.g. pushing shoving and throwing food on the floor) and if they do get a consequence it’s often not followed through. Midday Supervisors often say “the children have all the power at lunchtime”
