Breakfast Club

Wake up Shake up Breakfast Club’

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Here at Balby Central Primary Academy each day we offer lots of nutritious and delicious food for our children to choose for breakfast, this wonderful service is provided by the Greggs Foundation. Greggs, not only support us financially, they also provide scrumptious, freshly baked bread weekly! Each morning we provide a selection of food for breakfast such as: cereals, toast (choice of topping) fresh fruit juice, fruit, milk, yoghurt and crumpets. Due to the way in which this is funded, we can offer this service FREE for all parents! Not only does Breakfast club provide a nutritious start to the day we now introduce a fantastic ‘shake up’ part of the morning, after breakfast the children can join in an exercise routine to ‘Wake up and Shake up’ those brain cells ready for a fun day of learning!

Breakfast Club is held in the Hall with a maximum capacity of 120 places. The club starts at 8am and children should be dropped off outside the main reception area. Please note, there is no adult supervision before this time.

We have 120 places at our breakfast club. These places are allocated on a first come, first served basis so please ensure that you return your reply slip as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We are aware that this service is very popular so we ask that your child must attend Breakfast Club every morning that they are in school. This does not apply if your child is absent due to illness. If your child does not attend Breakfast Club and they are in school, their place will be revoked and allocated to another child on the waiting list. Exceptional circumstances will be considered, please contact school to discuss this with a member of staff. If not, we will assume that your child no longer requires their place. This is to ensure that the allocation of places is fair for all.

This fabulous service would not be possible without Greggs but also the volunteers that help each morning. Greggs specifically ask for a commitment from volunteers to help in Breakfast Club, this is a condition that we have to meet in order for us to keep this service they provide. If you, or any one you know such as friends, family or even neighbours who are willing to spare some time each morning please ask them to get in touch with school. We would love to hear from you!
