Herringham Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club operates from the KS2 hall from 7.30am until 8.30am serving breakfast food to children who arrive early at school, before formal lessons begin. The school works to provide a healthy, informal breakfast in a social situation encouraging our young people to interact with their peers whilst independently ensuring that they have their own breakfast of choice.

Every day there is a selection of non-sugared cereal, toast, fruit juice, water and milk to drink. There is also fresh fruit such as pineapple, melon, strawberries and kiwi fruit to encourage our children to try new things. A hot breakfast consisting of baked beans or spaghetti hoops on toast is also available on Thursdays.

From 7.30am, children are encouraged to serve themselves their cereal and drink before helping themselves to a constant stream of toast and fresh fruit.

After children have eaten, there are many educational opportunities for children to engage in:

  • Arts and crafts activities are available enabling children to complete season appropriate activities such as making Mother’s Day cards, Easter pictures etc.
  • Reading mentors are available to buddy up with our younger children to support them with their reading. Staff members are also available to read with older students.
  • Construction activities are available for our children to test their resilience and creativity.

 

We believe breakfast club has a warm and friendly environment enabling children to feel safe, also helping to provide them with a positive start to each day and also to:

  • Improve attendance and punctuality for the child.
  • By providing a healthy, substantial breakfast it would improve concentration levels during the morning and therefore academic achievement.
  • Promote social skills for children and parents.
  • Promote table manners and manners in general.
  • Encourage healthy eating by providing a wide range of healthy choices.
  • Encourage children to make their own choices.
  • Provide a calm, positive start to each day.
