Break & Lunchtime
Break and lunchtime are different at Secondary School.
You will have two 30 minute breaks on Monday to Thursday and one on Friday.
Break and lunchtime are important times for a range of activities. However, we know for some students, time outside of lessons can be difficult.
Therefore the key is to make a plan!
Decide when and where are you going to eat food. You should have a snack at break to keep you going through the morning.
Think about attending at least one club. We have many that are available at break and lunchtime, providing some alternative ways to spend your time. We will provide a list of the clubs at the start of term.
If you enjoy playing sports, the all weather pitch is open every break and lunchtime for football and other team games.
Make sure you go the toilet - Year 7 and 8 have their own toilets next to the REAL classrooms.
Some Advisors allow their advisory group to use their classroom at break and lunchtime. This is not always possible when the room has equipment in it that could be dangerous.
Phones can be used at break and lunchtime but need to be used responsibly. Also, do not miss out on talking to friends because you are staring at a screen!
If you are finding break and lunchtime difficult, speak to your Advisor and they will help you to find some ways of making it better.
