Our school has joined the government’s National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is being delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast.
As a NSBP School we are pleased to offer a healthy school breakfast from 8:00am, available and free to all, and enjoy the benefits that brings, with children settled and ready to learn at the start of the school day.
At least half a million children in the UK arrive at school each day too hungry to learn. Research has shown a direct link between the breakfast habits of children and their educational attainment, with children in primary schools where breakfast is provided achieving on average up to two months’ additional academic progress over the course of a year.
Our exciting National School Breakfast Programme, in partnership with Magic Breakfast and funded by the Department for Education, is working to support 1775 schools in disadvantaged communities across the country to improve access to healthy breakfasts and learning.
The service aims to:
- Ensure more children receive a healthy breakfast at the start of their day.
- Improve educational outcomes of disadvantaged young people
- Share best practices across schools and encourage innovative approaches to school breakfast provision.
