Silverdale’s Breakfast Club started in January 2004. The Breakfast Club has proved to be a winner with both parents and pupils. It provides a good start to the school day and it has been said that children who eat breakfast have better levels of concentration in the classroom.

Now that’s value for money!
The children are encouraged to eat well and at least try a portion of fruit, if nothing else. Food is prepared and served under the supervision of our Co-ordinator who holds a Basic Food Hygiene qualification.
Breakfast is served any time between 8.00 a.m. and 8.30 a.m. Once the children have eaten they can join other members of the Club in the Hall and, under supervision, they can play quietly with board games, do drawing/colouring, or just chat to friends if they so wish. Just before School starts the children go straight to their classes (the younger children are escorted to their classes) – so there’s no hanging around in the playground!
