Mayoral Visit to School Breakfast Club
The pupils of Egremont Primary School, Church Street, Wallasey, were surprised by some extra-special guests at their Breakfast Club today, Wednesday 4th July.
The club was visited by the Mayor and Mayoress of Wirral. They came to see the club, a new initiative, planned for and set up by Assistant Headteacher, Laura Snelgrove.
Egremont is a Rights Respecting School. This means that they value the right that all children have to a quality education. However, also realise how important it is that children are ready to learn when they arrive at school and having a good-quality breakfast that sets them up for the busy day ahead. The club was set up to ensure children could have a maximum impact on their learning.
Egremont Primary School offer Breakfast Club daily to all pupils for free! Children who attend receive breakfast to ensure that they are ready to face their day of learning.
The Egremont Breakfast Club has been set up in order to support children to arrive at school on time and have a filling breakfast. Studies show that children who have breakfast on a daily basis are more able to concentrate on their learning, get better results in tests and are involved in fewer behaviour incidents.
Laura Snelgrove commented that “Children really enjoy coming into school for their breakfast. We have already seen the impact that having a full tummy has on the children during their school day.”
The Breakfast Club has been running since Easter and already has had a drastic improvement on overall attendance, with it increasing by 2% over a single half-term.
