Active Lunchtimes

PSCL can offer schools a programme of unique lunchtime sports provision. The team of PSCL coaches will work with the school to create a safe, thriving, sporting environment for the pupils to enjoy during their dinner break.

By zoning off the playground/field we are able to add structure to lunchtime games and activities which allow the children to play sports safely and in a controlled, educational manner. The coach’s role is to engage as many children in sports and activities regardless of gender and ability.

PSCL currently run lunchtime sessions in 14 primary schools, the feedback from children and staff is extremely positive and outline the fantastic effects a structured lunchtime can have on the school day. As so many children are occupied and engaged in a structured environment, behavioural issues during the lunch break are dramatically reduced. School teaching staffs are delighted with the behavioural improvements shown by the children.  As part of the Lunchtime service, Primary Sports Coaching Limited will provide the following:

  • A playground design, mapping out the specific sports areas
  • Training for Lunchtime Organisers
  • Work within the schools budget to order appropriate, sustainable, safe sports equipment
  • A team of qualified, CRB/DBS checked coaches to work every day

The coaches will arrive 30 minutes prior to lunchtime to set up
and will also be pack away of all the equipment.

All PSCL Active Lunchtime Sports Coaches are:

  • DBS checked and approved
  • Safeguarding trained once a year
  • First aid trained
  • NGB Qualified in at least one sport
  • GDPR trained
