After a summer trial with select pupils, Holy Spirit has been operating a FREE breakfast club since October 2014.
The school felt that by offering this service, it could really help working families. A working mum of two using the breakfast club facility on a daily basis would face a monthly bill of £80. We felt this money was better off staying within the family purse.
A breakfast club with no cost can also support children who might be vulnerable, in terms of being hungry, late or who have poor attendance. These are all barriers to learning. Children with some behaviour issues can get a chance to get into an early routine and gain a sense of organisation and discipline by being in school early.
Mrs Lawless, (manager) Mrs Richardson and Mrs Durkan are working very hard to serve our community. If you would like your child to attend, please simply bring them along. If you have set days in mind, this may be useful for the team to know in advance.
The breakfast club runs Monday to Friday from 7.40 am.
