Wednesday 10th December
I visited the school to observe the Junior School lunch time, in particular, to look at the behaviour of the children in the playground.
I observed the whole lunch hour and saw the diverse range of playing which occurred. Role play, physical play, ball games, football training, wall climbing, den making. Something for everyone, and everyone being active and taking part.
The children played happily with very few incidents of bad behaviour. I talked with many children who were confident about the systems already in place that helped them know what to do if they needed adult help and support.
