Monday 25 March 2019 at 8:00am is the launch of The Charles Dickens School Breakfast Club.

The School is proud to announce, in partnership with the Department for Education’s new National School Breakfast Programme and Magic Breakfast, a FREE breakfast for every student in the School!  The School is proud to have the support of The Schoolwear Centre in Margate, and it’s very own PFA who have provided help with this venture.

A “Breakfast Club” has been set up which will run daily for every student who wishes to come along.  It will be open from 8:00am to 8:30am, before school, and students can have bagels, cereal and porridge all FREE of charge.  The canteen will be open as normal if students want to purchase additional items at a cost.

Students can enjoy this FREE breakfast, meet their friends and play board games, or read books and magazines, or simply just chat before they start their day. 

Everyone knows how important a good start to the day is so students are encouraged to come along and get some “fuel for school”.

Breakfast Club will launch on Monday 25 March 2019 and will be open Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 8:30am. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Shepperson, the School’s Closing the Gap Co-Ordinator.
