Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club is an early morning school club, run at Gainsborough Primary School to support working parents and support families who struggle in the morning. We offer a high standard of care for up to 30 children aged from 5 - 11 years; we have limited spaces for 4 year olds which need to be agreed in advance.

The club runs from 7.35am to 8.40am during term time, with children arriving at school between 7.35 – 8am; there is no entry to breakfast club after 8am (unless agreed in advance by a member of the school senior management team). The cost per session is £1.00 which includes toast, milk/water and fruit, but children are welcome to bring their own healthy snack in too. Payment must be made in advance, we offer sibling discounts.

Update on Breakfast Club

We have recently reviewed our Breakfast Club, due to high numbers of children attending. The club was set up to support families, in particular those with working/studying parents/carers. The aim of the club has always been to give the children a safe, settled and focused start to the day.

The club currently runs at a loss, costing the school over £1000 a term, in addition to the money paid by families.  We would like to continue to support our children and families but must put a new system in place. Please read the attached booklet for full information on how the club works and how to book a place for your child.

From Monday 02/11/15:

  • All children attending Breakfast Club must have a completed registration form (available from the office or click the link above), on file.
  • Places in the club must be booked and paid for in advance. The cost is £1 per session. Toast, milk and fruit will be available for the children if they require it.
  • Children may attend every day, a selection of days or by agreement occasionally. To ensure we have the correct staffing places must be booked in advance.
  • Once your child’s place has been confirmed you will need to pay in advance at the school office; we will then provide you with a copy of the contract and your receipt.
  • The club runs from 7.35am to 8.40am (when children are taken to class/playground) – no children will be allowed in to Breakfast Club after 8am (unless agreed by a member of the school senior management team.)
  • If an emergency breakfast club space is needed, then please ring the office, who will be able to organise this for you, wherever possible.
