Breakfast clubs provide a healthy meal at the start of the day in a safe and friendly environment. They also provide a great opportunity for children to play, learn and socialise with classmates. Attendance and punctuality is an important target in school and that is maintained in breakfast club too.
A breakfast club is a safe, friendly, relaxed place where children can enjoy a nutritional breakfast with their teachers and classmates before school. It’s the perfect place to start the day so children get all the energy they need for the day ahead.
