Extended School Day

Breakfast club

A well attended free daily breakfast club runs every morning during term time. Children can arrive any time between 8.10 to 8.30am and they will be offered a selection of healthy breakfast options: a variety of cereals, porridge oats, toast, bagels, beans on toast, pure fruit juice, milk. A great way to start the day!  The breakfast club benefits from support from The Magic Breakfast company who arrange for donations of fruit juice, porridge, cereals and bagels to be delivered to the school. Kingsmead school provides the staffing and other items for our breakfast club. We are very proud to be able to offer an entirely free breakfast to every member of the school community without prior registration.
