The free breakfast club initiative is aimed at providing primary school pupils with the opportunity of receiving a free, healthy breakfast at school each day.

Covid19: Breakfast club - Summer Term Applications

If your child requires a place in the summer term breakfast club (12th April – 20th July) please complete an application form using the following link https://www.rctcbc.gov.uk/breakfastclubform.  The form will be available for completion from 7am, Friday 12th March to 5pm, Friday 19th March. The number of places due to Covid restrictions will be limited to ensure that social distancing and effective hygiene and preventative measures can be maintained. Places will be prioritised based on the time of application and you will be notified at the end of the application if you are successful or unsuccessful.  Unsuccessful applicants will be placed on a reserve list and non-attendance will result in places being reallocated. Please note that in light of the current legislation in relation to breakfast clubs, prioritisation cannot be given to specific groups (e.g. previously unsuccessful applicants, vulnerable groups or key workers) as this provision is intended to provide a healthy breakfast to all learners. As places are restricted, please only apply if your child requires access to a free, healthy breakfast before the start of the school day.

 

Free breakfast in primary schools is an integral part of our wider work to improve food and nutrition in schools and ensure all children are treated equally.

Benefits of a pupil having a good breakfast in the morning:

  • Increases pupil's concentration and behaviour in school
  • Offers supervised play and social time in the morning
  • Prepares pupils for the day ahead
  • Improves punctuality and attendance
  • Useful for parents who need to start work early.

Timings of Breakfast Clubs vary from school to school, but typically run from 8.10am to 9am.

All children who attend will receive toast & fruit juice, with supervised playtime, before being taken to class.

We can also provide for allergies and special diets.
