Happy Healthy Dining Rooms

The Ofsted school inspection handbook (2019) states that inspectors will ensure that they talk to and observe pupils in a range of situations outside normal lessons to evaluate other aspects of personal development, behaviour and attitudes. This includes lunchtimes and dining rooms.

This course will help to ensure you are prepared and able to ensure that your lunchtimes are a calm, happy and organised environment. The training will help you to work with and engage pupils with the food they are eating and the choices they are making. Delegates will also receive a basic understanding of food safety and hygiene.

This event is also relevant for senior leadership to disseminate back in school. 


This event will cover the following topics:

  • How to promote and encourage healthy eating in the dining room.
  • How to promote a happy, calm and organised dining environment.
  • Preparing for an Ofsted inspection.
  • Low cost, no cost dining room improvements.
  • Effective and efficient queuing systems.
  • Promoting healthy choices in school meals and packed lunches.
  • The School Food Standards.
  • Monitoring of food consumption.
  • Pupil-led lunchtimes.
