Wet weather lunches - 1 December 2021

Teachers are entitled to an uninterrupted meal break and 10-minute rest pause each day, regardless of the weather. Consequently, schools should make appropriate arrangements to ensure that in the case of wet weather, supervision duties do not reduce these entitlements.

At the end of each week, a full-time teacher must have received a daily 10-minute rest pause and 225 minutes per week of uninterrupted meal break (whether this is provided in half hour or 45 minute blocks per day is subject to LCC discussions).

Any modified playground duty roster to accommodate wet weather must ensure these entitlements.
