Lunches and Break-times

Fun-filled lunchtimes and playtimes are crucial ingredients in any child's day.

It is our aim to maintain a stimulating and safe environment in which all our children can explore a host of social interactions, and explore a range of equipment with which they can develop their creative and physical spirits. Playtimes are generously staffed and children play happily.

Playtimes: Our pupils have access to a secure playground, adventure playground and a large grassed area when weather permits; plenty of space for the active amongst our pupils. Quiet spaces are identified both inside and outside where pupils can engage in quieter activities such as reading, drawing and conversation. Pupils have free access to water throughout playtimes, and fruit and biscuits are served at morning break. 

Numerous lunchtime clubs are on offer and many pupils attend these. This leads to a large degree of fluidity in the friendship groups we observe at playtimes.

Infant pupils play three times a day:

Morning break 10.20 am - 10.40 am
Lunch break 12.30 pm - 1.15 pm
Afternoon break 2.40 pm - 3.00 pm

Juniors play twice daily:

Morning break 10.20 am - 10.40 am
Lunch break 12.30 pm - 1.15 pm
Alleyn's friends are the best. They are always by your side.
