We are pleased to run a breakfast club which is available to pupils from Reception to Year 6. Breakfast club has been introduced to provide children with a healthy start to the school day, helping to improve the health and concentration of children and so raise the standards of learning and attainment; it is not a childcare service.
Toast, cereal, fruit juice and water is served.
The club is part-funded by a Welsh Government grant that commits to providing a free breakfast for all children of primary school age registered in maintained primary schools in Wales. The grant does not, however, cover the cost of supervision for the number of children registered. Therefore, in order to accommodate the number of pupils who require breakfast and supervision before the start of the school day, we ask for a contribution of £1 per pupil, per week, regardless of the number of sessions attended. This contribution is payable a term in advance via ParentPay.
If you wish for your child to attend our Breakfast Club and are able to contribute to the childcare cost, please print and complete the Breakfast Club application form (also available from the school office) and return it to the office. We will then inform you when your child can begin attending. There is no expectation for parents whose child is in receipt of free school meals to contribute to the childcare cost.
Breakfast club begins at 8:00am and is held in each of the school halls. Pupils in Reception to Year 2 must attend the breakfast club in the foundation phase hall and pupils in Year 3 to Year 6 must attend breakfast club in the key stage 2 hall. Pupils attending should enter the school through the doors at the rear of each hall where they will be registered. In order to keep our children safe and to ensure sufficient time to serve all children breakfast, doors close at 8.20am.
When children have finished eating, games and activities are provided for the children to play with. Additionally, children in key stage 2 are able to play outside where they are supervised. At the end of breakfast club, pupils in foundation phase will be escorted to their classrooms in time for registration.
