Reverse the decision to reduce the funding for breakfast clubs and maintain full provision for all schools in Swansea.

This petition made change with 1,237 supporters!


Breakfast clubs were introduced in Wales in 2004 with the aim of providing breakfast in school to improve the diet, health and concentration of children in a bid to raise the standards of learning and attainment.

Swansea Council are proposing to fund only 30 minutes per day for this provision from the end of May 2015.  This would result in a loss of jobs and have an adverse impact on parents who have irregular or unsocial working patterns and rely upon this provision; particularly at a time when child poverty is projected to rise.

Furthermore many schools have indicated that they would be unable to provide this service in only 30 minutes which would result in the service being withdrawn altogether.

UNISON members will bear the brunt of this attack as it is run by support staff who provide a safe, secure environment and work hard to provide a positive start to our children's everyday learning.
