The partnership audit showed that a significant number of schools found lunchtimes could be a problem for some students, which can lead to those pupils finding it difficult to then settle back into the classroom in the afternoon.
Some schools reported a high number of behavioural incidents occurred at lunch times.
Lunch time activities can also help address the inactivity of some students, so enabling schools to work towards the government's target of 3 hours high quality PE and school sport per school week.
