Breakfast, Break and Lunch
Breakfast Club at Lealands High School runs between 8.00am and 8.25am.
Research tells us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A good breakfast provides the nutrients that people need to start their day. Studies show that children who eat a good breakfast do better in school than children who do not.
Children who eat a good breakfast have a better attendance and decreased hyperactivity. Children who don’t eat breakfast tend to not perform as well, and also tend to have behaviour problems.
The Lealands’ Breakfast Club will provide a FREE nutritious meal for students eligible for Free School Meals who might otherwise not eat breakfast (up to the value of £1.60). A breakfast is available for all other students at a subsidised cost.
Newspapers, magazines and games are also available.
The aims of Lealands’ Breakfast Club are:
- to provide the energy and nutrition required by the mind and body for active learning
- to improve attendance, concentration and learning in the classroom
- to provide positive examples of healthy eating to create a foundation for lifelong healthy eating habits
- to enable children to socialise, listen and talk in a relaxed atmosphere
- encourage good social skills development with a focus on literacy

Students can purchase a wide range of hot dinners, grab and go hot options, salad or pasta pots, baguettes or sandwiches from either the Dining Hall or the Atrium.
The menus change daily and vegetarian / Halal options are always available. There is always a choice of at least three hot main meals and a range of deserts. Salad is available along with a range of vegetables and side dishes.
Students may choose to bring a packed lunch which they may eat in their allocated area.
