BREAKFAST CLUB SUPPORTED BY THE NATIONAL SCHOOL BREAKFAST PROGRAMME (NSBP) - Monday - Friday 8am - 8:45am
We aim to provide pupils of all ages with a safe, secure and happy environment to start their school day. We also aim to provide a range of stimulating, challenging and enjoyable experiences for all the children, giving them the opportunity to develop personal and interpersonal skills, their self-esteem and the motivation to learn.
Breakfast Club gives children an opportunity to relate to one another and to cooperate with children of different ages. For example, the older children will help the younger ones with reading skills, taking turns and accepting the outcomes of games.
Children are offered a nutritious breakfast with a selection of cereals, breads, spreads, yoghurts and fruit. Occasionally, the menu is supplemented with seasonal treats. Water is freely available at all times. This year, the NSBP via Magic Breakfast and Family Action, will be generously assisting our programme by donating free bagels, cereal and porridge for the whole of the academic year. This will support our drive to ensure all children are ready for learning at the beginning of each school day. Playground bagels are also offered to all pupils who arrive when the gates open at 8:45am.
Activities include: board and maths games, reading for pleasure, homework help, crafts, drawing and colouring. There are also themed activities linked to events such as Eid, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day & Christmas.
Children are free to participate, under the supervision of the staff, in a range of free play and structured activities. Taking part in the setup and tidying of activities, helps them to develop ownership as they learn to take care of equipment to co-operate and to share.
