Breakfast Club

Free breakfast clubs have been introduced in some schools in Newport to provide children with a healthy start to the school day, helping to improve the health and concentration of children and so raise the standards of learning and attainment.

The Welsh Government made a commitment to provide a free breakfast for all children of primary school age registered in maintained primary schools in Wales.

At St. Julian’s Primary, we are pleased to run a breakfast club which is available to all pupils. We usually have capacity for around 120 pupils.

If you wish for your child to attend our Breakfast Club, please complete the Breakfast Club Application Form (paper copy also available from the school office). We will then inform you when your child can begin attending.

At the start of each academic year, only existing members from the previous year may attend breakfast club during the first week of term.

Breakfast club begins at 8:20am and is held in the Foundation Phase dining room. Pupils attending should enter the school through the Foundation Phase main reception area (no later than 8:30am), where they will be greeted by staff who will take them up to the dining room.

Early Bird Breakfast Club

To support parents who are in need of earlier childcare, we offer an ‘Early Bird’ breakfast club option whereby children can be dropped off at school at 8am. To cover the staffing costs for this, we charge £1 per child per session. This is charged to your ParentPay account. For more information about this, please contact the school office.

For breakfast, children receive…

a bowl of cereal

a piece of toast

a piece of fruit

a drink of juice

When children have finished eating, they can play with the games and activities which are provided. At the end of breakfast club, pupils will be escorted to their classrooms in time for registration.

Whilst at Breakfast Club, the children will be supervised by school staff. For their own safety, children will not be able to go back out onto the school yard after they have come into Breakfast Club.

If your child has any allergies, please inform the member of staff upon arrival.

Due to limited places, children who don’t regularly attend will be taken off the list and their space will be offered to another child.

The school provides a breakfast club to ensure that all pupils have a healthy breakfast each morning; it is not a childcare service. Children who attend breakfast club but don’t need breakfast (because they’ve already eaten breakfast at home) may be asked to give up their space for other pupils who do need breakfast.
