Our Breakfast Club currently runs from 7.45 each morning and costs just £2.00. Places are limited so please book & pay in advance through the Breakfast Club or school office. The club is very popular so if you require a regular place for your child it is important that you let us know your requirements for the start of each term. We intend to move to payment through ParentPay soon.
In 2014, Magic Breakfast won a bid for DfE funding to support 183 schools in starting up a free breakfast club to trial the impact of children getting a breakfast before school. The research has recently been published and reveals they have been a resounding success - showing that breakfast in schools does have a demonstrable impact on attainment. In fact the research showed that a universal free breakfast provision at school delivered the equivalent to 2 months academic progress for pupils. Not only that, but it also highlighted the improvements in the classroom in the behaviour of the children attending and suggesting that there were improved outcomes for all pupils.
We are delighted to have been part of research that proved children do better at schools offering a healthy breakfast and, even after the project has finished plan to keep offering our successful Magic Breakfast, free for everyone each day
Our Magic Breakfast is now supported by Amazon and we welcomed members of their team to school recently and look forward to working with them in the future.
We were delighted to have secured funding from "Magic Breakfast" and Amazon to provide a free breakfast for every child in school, every day. Since re-opening to all pupils after Covid restrictions, we provide bagels to all children in their classroom at the start of the day and we have seen improvements to punctuality, attendance, behaviour and social interaction.
Research shows a healthy breakfast brings a whole host of benefits, including improved concentration and behaviour leading to better learning.
We trialled an after school club at the start of last term and are pleased that numbers attending mean we will be able to continue running this for the forseeable future.
We'd always love to see more children attending so if you've not tried it yet why not see what it's like. Children have access to a range of facilities; craft supplies, toys, games, a secure playground and our Forest School area as well as staff and resources on hand to assist with homework or projects.
Children are provided with a drink and snack on arrival and a small meal for those staying after 4pm.
The club runs 3-5pm Monday-Friday at a cost of £4 per hour. Discounts available for siblings and those on free school meals.
