  • a tasty, healthy and nutritious breakfast menu including: cereal, toast with butter and jam, fruit, yoghurts, crumpets, pancakes, milk and fruit juice.

  • different activities and the opportunity to prepare for the day ahead.


The Breakfast Club staff will ensure that appropriate standards of behaviour, good manners and hygiene are maintained.

Breakfast Club will run from 7.50am to the start of the school day at 8.50am, from the school hall. Breakfast will be served until 8.30am. It will not operate during school holidays or INSET days.


Only children for whom a Registration Form has been completed may attend the Breakfast Club. You can collect a form from the school office or they can email one to you. Once this has been completed and returned to school, a payment item for Breakfast Club will be set up on your ParentPay account.
