We host a free breakfast club.

Willow Wood Breakfast club runs each morning for all children in school. Breakfast club starts at 8am and is supervised by two of our lunchtime supervisors who volunteer every morning to make the children their breakfast. Children are then cared for three of our HLTAs  where they have time to socialise with their friends on the yard, however if it is raining outside the children are able to enjoy fun and games inside.
