Breakfast Club


Breakfast Club: 8.00am – 8.55am


Breakfast is an important meal and sets children up well for a full day of learning. It fuels the body and gets the brain thinking in order for children to concentrate more readily.

In school, we offer a breakfast club each morning.

Breakfast is served from 8.00am for children at a cost of £1.50 per day. Children are offered a selection of cereals, toast, yoghurt and fruit.

From 8.20am – 8.50am structured activities and games are prepared for children to get involved in, either within the school Hall or the Gym. These activities are led by Teaching Assistants employed in school.


Should you wish to or need to talk to your child’s teacher they are available each morning on both playgrounds. We strongly advise parents to ensure there is parental or adult supervision for children coming to and home from school. Please inform us if someone different is collecting your child.


On days when the weather is very bad, children can come into their classrooms when informed by a teacher.


Please note that we openly welcome, encourage and expect Foundations Stage 1 children to come in to their classrooms with their parents. Parents can then settle their child in and speak with the class teachers about their child.


Security and Safety of Children


At Roe Farm Primary School we aim to ensure that children are safe and secure at all times.


Therefore we will:

Only release your child into the care of individuals named by parents.

If someone arrives to collect your child that is unknown to us, we will not let them go.


Please inform us beforehand if someone different is collecting your child, a password will be requested should staff not know the person collecting.


Only release your Key Stage 2 child – Year 3/4/5/6 to walk home alone if you instruct us to.

Follow risk assessment procedures when taking your child on any outing outside of school.

Ensure all visitors to school enter via the front entrances.

Ensure all visitors sign in and wear a visitor’s badge.
