Breakfast Club

At Guildford Grove we are pleased to offer a free breakfast club for all our pupils,  available from 8.15am, in the small school hall.  Parents are asked to stay with children in Year 1 and under.  Items are also available for parents to purchase.  

The breakfast club is funded by Greggs.  The Greggs Foundation oversees over 380 clubs, providing a nutritious breakfast to over 22,220 school children each day, over 4 million each year!!!

Everybody knows the benefits of a healthy breakfast, but not every child gets one before the start of the school day. 

Evaluations of breakfast club schemes have uncovered the following key benefits of breakfast clubs:

 

  • Children have improved health and nutrition.
  • Children have improved attendance and punctuality.
  • Children are able to socialise and make friends.
  • Children have better relations with school staff.
  • Parents are less wary of school and are more likely to attend parents evenings.
  • Children are able to concentrate better and results are improved.
