Clwb Brecwast – Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club is held every school day morning in the School Hall and is open to all children from Reception to Year 6.  It is staffed by Miss Rabia Zafar – Supervisor and Mrs Lisa Callaghan, Breakfast Club Assistant.  Access is via the ramp at the back of the school and through the hall door.

  • Our opening hours are from 7.50 a.m. until 8.40 a.m.  The doors close at 8.30 a.m. promptly so please ensure that you bring your child to Breakfast Club within this time frame.  Unfortunately, if you arrive any later than 8.30 a.m. with your child, we will not be able to admit them.
  • Remember – you MUST  sign in your child each day at the entrance to Breakfast Club.
  • Please ensure you pre pay for your sessions via Parentpay.
  • Pupils will go straight into their classroom when the school doors open at 8.40 a.m.
  • For Health and Safety reasons, please note that that no child should be left unaccompanied on the school yard before 08.40 a.m. as staff are not out on duty until this time.

Changes to charges for Breakfast club from September

Many primary schools in Wrexham offer a free breakfast at a session in the 30 minutes before the start of school. Please be reassured that there will continue to be no charge for this meal.

However, to supplement the free breakfast session, many schools offer an additional 30 minute play session and charge parents £1 per child (free to children who are eligible for free school meals).

While this rate has remained unchanged since the provision was introduced in 2018, due to increased staffing and administrative costs, and the fact that the council receives no external funding, this is no longer sustainable.

To make sure that schools are able to continue to provide these sessions, the fee per child for the 30 minute play session will increase to £2 per child (50p for children who are eligible for free school meals) from September 1, 2023.

This increase does not affect the 30 minute breakfast session immediately prior to the start of the school day, which remains free for all children.

We know this comes at a time when many residents are finding household costs a challenge. If you are struggling to meet your household costs, please visit Wrexham Council’s ‘help with the cost of living’ pages for advice on any other help you may be able to access.

Welsh Government also have a cost of living help web page, which provides information of sources of possible financial support.

If you would like your child to attend a breakfast session, please contact their school for the details.
