Breakfast Club & School Lunches

Breakfast Club

We are delighted to link up with the Department for Education sponsored National Breakfast Programme to provide breakfast items for pupils throughout the autumn and spring terms 2020/21.

The aim is to provide a healthy breakfast either before school starts or at break time to all Shepwell pupils. Evidence is clear that educational attainment, effort and concentration levels all improve as a result of a good breakfast. The programme is funded by the Department for Education, and is being delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast. This provision will start on Monday 12th October 2020 and will run until March 2021 in the first instance.

A pack of New York style bagels and cereals will be available on a fortnightly basis as part of the programme for pupils who are self-isolating or receiving home tuition.

The Breakfast Club will open term time only.
Monday to Friday
8.00am – 8.30am
