Holme on Spalding Moor Primary School has started its very own Breakfast Club.

It is hoped that the initiative will make life a little easier for working parents.

In a recent study, 90% of working parents with primary aged children agreed that breakfast clubs are important to the daily life of a school.

Headteacher Steve Woodhouse welcomed the new service at the school.

He said: “We recognise that it is often difficult for working parents to fit in the traditional school run. At Holme on Spalding Moor we try to create a true family feeling.

“If we can support families by making the working day a little easier, that’s what we want to do. I’m particularly looking forward to Wednesday mornings when bacon sandwiches are on offer.”

The school’s growing reputation has meant that parents often travel from other areas to enrol their children.

Mr Woodhouse added: “We are lucky in that we are positioned on a main road in the village. With the additional club now in place, parents can literally drop off their children on the way to work.

“It’s a win-win situation as the children enjoy the fun activities too.”

Mr Woodhouse also sees the school’s rural setting as a valuable asset, saying: “Town schools are becoming more and more overcrowded as residential building continues. We are working hard to maintain some of the best adult to child ratios in the area.”

The school plans to start an after school club in September to support families even further.
