Breakfast Club

At St Barnabas we have a very successful breakfast club, which costs just £1.20p per day. It runs Monday to Friday and as part of the breakfast children will receive a choice of:

  • Cereal
  • Toast
  • Juices
  • Hot Chocolate or Tea

It’s important for your child to eat something nutritious each morning to re-fuel for the busy day ahead. Breakfast is an ideal opportunity to eat foods which are rich in B vitamins, folate, iron and fibre.  Skipping breakfast may affect your child’s concentration or leave them feeling ‘fuzzy’. This is because the brain is starving for energy and needs fuel from nutritious foods like grainy bread, breakfast cereals, fruit and milk so it can function at its very best throughout the day.

At St Barnabas we run a successful Breakfast Club, Monday to Friday, at a charge of £1.20 per day; starting at 7.45am.


Snack Time

At 10.40am every day the school has a comfort break for 15 minutes. During comfort break children in KS2 are welcome to bring in a healthy snack from home to enjoy. Chocolate and other high sugary snacks are not allowed.

  • Fresh Fruit
