Launch Pad is a FREE Breakfast Club that runs before school every day during term-time at The Wickbourne Centre. Children who attend get a healthy nutritious breakfast that includes cereals, toast, yoghurts and fresh fruit, plus opportunities for games or craft sessions before cleaning their teeth and joining the Walking Bus to school.
The service takes up to 40 children on a referral basis from schools, social services and other professional agencies, but also from parents, families and friends. There are many reasons why children are invited to attend Launch Pad. These can range from problems with getting to school, to challenging family circumstances.
Children at Launch Pad attend one our partner schools; River Beach, White Meadows, and The Littlehampton Academy. Since 2010 the club has been partially supported by BBC Children In Need and was featured on the TV show in November 2011. The film is below.
