Breakfast Club Applications - Spring Term 2021


If your child requires a place in the spring term breakfast club (4th Jan – 26th Mar) please complete an application form using the following link: 

The form will be available for completion from 7am, Friday 27th November to 5pm, Friday 4th December.

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 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.
