This can be combined with an observation of the Lunch-hall if desired.
Lunchtime at school is the closest most children get to freely interacting with their environment and peers without constant adult direction and interference. When lunchtimes are well supervised, the role of lunchtime staff is to minimise harm by helping children learn to manage social interactions, make healthy and sensible choices and deal with any situation where an adult is necessary with a light but supportive and caring touch.
Is that how it is in your playground? An impartial observation can form the basis for your Performance Management, school development or staff training as well as providing information for governors and parents alike.
