Breakfast Club

Dear Parents/Carers

At Deal Parochial CEP Breakfast Club we believe in creating a secure and positive environment for our children, actively encouraging and fostering independence.

We strongly promote the school’s Christian Values of kindness, trust, friendship, respect, courage and forgiveness and feel this is evident in our daily practice. Our aim is to give the children a great start to their morning, allowing them to feel ready to face the busy day ahead.

When does breakfast club take place?

Breakfast Club starts at 8:00am on school days in the school hall.

Each session lasts for forty minutes after which children join their friends in the classroom for the start of the school day.

Menu

The menu for Breakfast Club is toast with a selection of toppings served until 8:20am

Cereals, fruit juice, milk and water are also offered and continue to be available until 8:30am. Fresh fruit is also served daily.

In colder weather, we also serve porridge.

N.B. Unless you tell us otherwise we will assume your child has not already had breakfast and therefore ensure they eat before they go off to play.

Special dietary and/or medical needs should be discussed directly with Ms Pettitt.

A copy of our Food Policy is available on request. 

Due to guidelines set out by the Food Standards Agency, we kindly request that you do not send your children in with food or drinks of their own.
