In order to make our office as efficient as possible –we don’t now keep school uniform on site – you can buy this from Khalsa Uniform shop in Bethnal Green We are aware that the prices are a little higher but the quality of the clothing is much improved.



Breakfast Club

We want every child at John Scurr to start the day with everything they need in order to learn effectively; a fundamental element of this is a healthy, filling breakfast. The chance to socialise with peers & adults, to keep fit & play also play an important role in readying children for the day ahead.

Children can arrive any time from 08:00 am, until 08:40 am, and they will be offered a selection of healthy breakfast options: a variety of cereals, porridge oats, bagels, juice, milk and yoghurt. A great way to start the day!  The breakfast club benefits from support from the Magic Breakfast Mayor's Fund for London Project. (Please see more information on this link

This gives every child the opportunity to start the day with the right fuel for learning.
