Breakfast Club In Crisis!

The Welsh Government currently funds the FREE Breakfast Club for 30 minutes per day, 8.15am to 8.45am.  In order to us to offer this facility from 8.00am we have to charge £1.50 per day to cover the staffing costs.  This means that we must have a minimum of 3 pupils each day who pay. If parents wish the earlier start time to continue then they must make use of it. Over the past few months there have been mornings with only one or two or even none!  School cannot afford to run the club at a loss and has already reduced staff.
