Lansbury Lawrence Primary School School Breakfast Club aims to provide pupils of all ages with a safe and fun place to start their school day. Breakfast Club is open to all pupils and we will do our best to accommodate the needs of your child. If your child has special needs/disabilities and requires extra support, please discuss this with Breakfast Club staff and/or Sue Marshall.
The club is informal and friendly, allowing children a choice as to how they start the day: some children like to wake up slowly, others prefer to get on and play. The club provides for both, quiet space (for reading, etc.) and a free play area, as well as more structured activities. Play, rather than education, is at the heart of the club.
Each morning a nutritious breakfast is provided. The children are encouraged to help themselves, sit down and talk together, and then clear up their dishes: the idea is that our breakfast replicates as far as possible the atmosphere of a family meal. At the end of the session, the children are well fed, happy and ready to learn.
Breakfast Club has a fixed cost of £1,00 per session, which includes a choice of breakfast and fun activities. The cost does not change depending on the time you arrive or if you choose not to have breakfast with us.
Registering with Breakfast Club
Bookings can only be accepted for children who have registered for Breakfast Club. Registration forms are available from the school office or Sue Marshall. Completed forms should be returned to the office. There is a waiting, therefore your child would not be able to start straight away.
Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis to those that hand in their booking form and payment first.
We are open from 7:30 am -8.45 am every weekday during term time (excluding Inset days).
We serve breakfast until 8.30 am. Please ensure your child arrives in plenty of time if you wish them to eat with us.
It is vital that children attending Breakfast Club are signed in. Children in Reception, Year 1, 2 and must be signed in by their parents, whereas children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 can sign themselves in, with prior permission from their parents.
We provide unlimited food and we encourage all children to eat and drink something.
Everyday we offer:
- A choice of at least 3 different cereals.
- Toasted bagels with butter
- Fruit juice or milk
Occasionally, the menu is supplemented with seasonal treats: different bakery goods; porridge; yoghurts; or foods from around the world to reflect the curriculum in school; and even a cooked breakfast.
Where possible, any special diets will be catered for. We also look for opportunities for the children to cook and prepare food, as appropriate.
The Breakfast Club is run by three members of staff: Anna Bowman, Lynn Ross and Stacey Lockhart
All members of staff are DBS-checked and hold appropriate qualifications in first aid, food hygiene, child and play work. In addition, at least one member of the school staff is always on site in case of emergency.
We aim for each child to be happy and comfortable at the breakfast club. You can help us by providing as much information as possible about their likes/dislikes on their registration form.
Any information relevant to a particular day can be discussed briefly at drop-off. If you have any more detailed issues that you would like to discuss with club staff, then you can arrange a mutually convenient time for a telephone call or short meeting outside of club operation times.
As you will appreciate, the breakfast club staff have several children to look after and cannot pass individual messages on to class teachers. If there is something that the class teacher needs to know, then please write a note or call the school office.
