Breakfast Club

We have two Breakfast Clubs in school and both are free of charge and open to children from 8am each morning.

The one in the PE hall is for children from Key Stage 1 upwards and the one in the Community Kitchen is for Foundation Stage children only.

We serve cereal, toast and juice at both clubs – all information regarding ingredients can be found on the notice boards in school if you have any concerns over allergies etc.

The PE Hall Breakfast Club is run by Mrs Frost and the Community Kitchen Breakfast Club is run by Mrs Hufton – please feel free to speak to either of them for more information.

Both Breakfast Clubs re-start on Tuesday 6th September 2016 at 8am and entry is via the Y3/4 doors off the KS2 playground.

School Milk

If you wish for your child to receive milk in school you need to apply online by logging onto the Cool Milk websitewww.coolmilk.com if you have any difficulties registering for Cool Milk please see Mrs Gunn in the main school office who will be more than happy to assist.

If the child you are registering is aged over 5, Cool Milk can provide healthy, nutritious school milk daily for less than £15 a term.  If the child is under 5, Cool Milk can provide the milk free but you MUST register with them in order to receive the milk.

All milk must be paid for in advance via the online Cool Milk system – school cannot accept payment for milk.
