St Anne's Primary School is a Rights Respecting School. It cares about Children's rights and models rights and respect in all its relationships.
We work hard to ensure all children, staff, parents and the wider community link together to explore, investigate, uphold and enjoy children's rights.

In St Anne's we all recognise and act upon our rights and actions and respect to the school, local community and the wider world.

Breakfast club will be available from 8.00 a.m. Primary 4 - Primary 7 children will be on the playground (if dry) / assembly hall (if wet) from 8.30 a.m.

Breakfast Club
8.00 a.m. - 8.50 a.m. each day
Everyone attending the breakfast club receives a ticket worth 25p This means that any of the 50p specials below only cost 25p Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it is the first meal eaten after an all night fast. It provides the body with energy for the day ahead. Research shows that children who skip breakfast do not perform so well at school. Parents should encourage children to have an adequate breakfast in the morning. Suitable breakfasts are – breakfast cereals (preferably wholegrain, with no sugar added), boiled egg and toast, baked beans and toast etc. Alternatively you might like to encourage your child to come along to our Breakfast Club: This has proved to be very successful. If your child misses his/her breakfast at home send him/her to the Breakfast Club. Breakfast Club is not only for children. Everyone is Welcome!
