Breakfast Club
The Big Breakfast is a service open to all pupils, funded by the Scottish Executive, and offers cereal, milk, toast and fruit juice.  
The Big Breakfast is a great start to the day by providing food in a relaxed atmosphere where pupils can meet friends under supervision, prior to start of school.

Please remember that if your child is attending the Big Breakfast to remind them of road safety. Road crossing patrols will not start any earlier therefore it is the parents responsibility for their child`s safe arrival at school.
