We offer a free breakfast club to all learners from reception to year 6. Children who have had a nutritious meal before school learn better, fell better and behave better. Children learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle through selecting a balanced breakfast and taking part in physical activity. Children can develop play and teamwork through other activities offered. Children also develop a sense of responsibility through taking shared ownership of resources and duties.
Children are given the opportunity to attend an activity session every morning which includes both robust and quieter social activities with a choice of breakfast food options.
Most children are choosing more robust physical activities in the hall particularly the keep fit days. Regular attendance has risen over 30% since introducing such activities. Improved school attendance for a number of children as well as improved behaviours from those attending is evident.
Staff are well trained and regularly monitor children’s progress to ensure that they are engaged in activities that develop their skills and help them grow in confidence. Staff provide many and varied opportunities for children to develop their speech through careful questioning and a range of interesting activities. Children are safe and happy and play well together.
