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 our HLTAs every morning to make the children their breakfast and supervise them whilst 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.
