Primary school breakfast clubs provide an excellent start to the school day.
They aim to:
- provide a healthy nutritious meal
- help children to be alert and ready to learn
- encourage children to mix with their friends
- improve attendance and performance throughout the day
- reassure parents that their child is safe when dropped off in the morning
All primary schools in North Lanarkshire operate a breakfast club.
The opening times range from 8.15am until 8.50am and operate at the discretion of the headteacher.
The breakfast consists of cereal, milk and toast. This is free to pupils who are in Primary 1 to 4 and for pupils in Primary 5 to 7 who receive free school meals. For all other pupils the cost is £1 per day with a sliding scale for families of two at £1.50 per day and families of three at £1.80 per day.
