Keir Hardie runs a breakfast club every morning during term time from 7:45am. The doors close at 8.25am promptly so all children need to be in by 8.20am so that they can be ready to be in class by 8.45am. The cost is 50p per day per child and the children receive a healthy breakfast of cereal, toast, jam, beans/egg, fruit/yoghurt and juice. After breakfast the children engage in a variety of activities until the start of the school day. Breakfast club is open to all children from Reception through to Year 6 on a regular or ad hoc basis. There is no need to reserve a place. We are very sorry but we are unable to take nursery children.
A range of extra-curricular clubs are offered to individual year groups throughout the academic year with the intention that every child should have access to at least one extra-curricular activity at some stage during the year.
