Breakfast Club


Greggs Breakfast Club at St Mark’s


We are very fortunate to receive funding from Greggs to provide breakfast for our pupils. The club also provides a gentle transition into school. Please email Mrs Stephens for more information.

The Greggs breakfast club scheme has been running since 1999 and is designed to provide a simple, nutritious breakfast to children in primary schools, typically with over 40% free school meals.

Research into and practical experience of the effects of breakfast clubs has shown the following positive benefits:

  • Improved attendance and punctuality
  • Improved behaviour
  • Children complete more tasks and behave better
  • Concentration and achievement at schools
  • Longer-term benefits for memory and cognition
  • Strengthening of school/parental relationship
  • Opportunity for children to meet and communicate with others in a social setting
  • Help for parents to take on training or work


Additionally, Greggs provides bread for toast club and fruit for breaktime.
