We are extremely lucky to have been picked as one of the first six schools in Kirklees to have our Breakfast Club funded by the charitable trust set up by Huddersfield Town FC. This means that all the food for the club will be provided free of charge. The aim of the trust is to provide a breakfast to as many children as possible. The club is called ‘Early Kick Off’ to reflect its connections to the football club. The launch was on November 12th 2012 and attended by members of the Trust and club, including former Town player Andy Booth. Since then, the club has gone from strength to strength, with the average daily attendance being around a hundred children. Huddersfield Town Foundation are still actively involved in our breakfast club. The photo above shows some of the members and trustees with toys and games they generously provided for the children.
The club is free to all children. Each session runs from 8.00am to 8.50am, with breakfast taking up the first half hour, followed by different activities. The children can choose from a range of healthy breakfast foods, including wholemeal toast, cereals, yoghurt, fruit and porridge. Please be aware that 8.20am is the latest children can arrive. The club is held in the Hall, so please bring your child to the Main Entrance.
If you would like to volunteer to help at our Breakfast Club, please contact Mrs Mellor in school.
