CPD workshop: Lunchtime behaviour

In this series, Steve Burnage offers CPD workshop ideas that can be adapted for your school. Here, he looks at positive behaviour management for lunchtime supervisors and support staff

This article provides a 45-minute interactive training outline that could be suitable for a staff meeting, staff development group, small group CPD or individual study. The training outline is below and the PowerPoint slides and handout are free to download (click the buttons above).

By the end of this CPD, you will have:

Activity: Thinking about incidents of student behaviour at lunchtime. Which behaviours help you do your job and which ones hinder you? Record and share your ideas. Now, think about the causes of each behaviour. What causes good behaviours in students? What causes problem behaviour?

The environment: How do you create a positive lunchtime environment? What do you do to make the physical environment safe?
