Breakfast and After School Club

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club at Peninsula East Primary Academy is open to all children, including Nursery, and from Reception to Year 6.

Gates open at 7:45am and food is served until 8.15am.

Breakfast Club costs £4 a day. The cost is kept to a minimum to make it accessible to allow as many children as possible to have a good start to their school day. Sessions must be booked and paid for on the MyChildAtSchool (MCAS) app in advance. At Peninsula East Primary Academy, we provide a healthy breakfast for children, alongside activities that they can take part in before school. Children come in and have their breakfast, then they have time to play. There are a variety of activities available each day such as board games, colouring and drawing.

Do children benefit?

There has been a wealth of research into the benefits of children having a good breakfast. These include:

  • Improved concentration
  • Improved attendance and punctuality
  • Better behaviour
  • Improved attainment and achievement at school.

Some children arrive at school hungry, so inviting pupils to the Breakfast Club ensures that they start the day with a proper breakfast, which has knock-on effects on their learning and behaviour. Teachers say that breakfast clubs have a noticeable impact on the children who attend. That hour before school is stress-free. There’s no need for hurrying or being late, because they are already there. They also have a nutritious breakfast and always start their day feeling calm and positive, ready for learning.

Extended After School Provision

Our After School Club runs from the end of every school day through until 5:30pm (4:30pm on Friday). We understand children have been working hard at school and wish to relax and unwind at the end of the school day. Children will be provided with drinks and snacks, including a sandwich/wrap as well as a range of activities, these activities include board games, arts and crafts and imaginative play. The cost will be £10 per full session per child and £6.50 per child for a ½ session. Children can be picked up at any time after 3pm until 5.30pm (4.30pm on Fridays) and do not need to stay the whole time.

Sessions must be booked and paid for on the MyChildAtSchool (MCAS) app in advance.
