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 - Autumn Term Applications

If your child requires a place in the Autumn term breakfast club (2nd Sept – 17th Dec 2021) please complete an application form using the following link: check the table below to see when the form will be available for your child’s school.

The number of places 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 by Friday 23rd July if you are successful or unsuccessful.  Unsuccessful applicants will be placed on a reserve list and non-attendance of successful applicants 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.


  • 19 schools will be released each day.
  • Each school will be available for 1 week once released.
  • Siblings will be grouped together – this means that if the application for the first sibling is successful then all other siblings will be grouped together and will have successful applications.
  • Parents will be notified if they are successful/unsuccessful via email by Friday 23rd July.

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 or cereals & fruit juice, with supervised playtime, before being taken to class.

We can also provide for allergies and special diets.
