We are delighted to inform you that we have secured funding to enable us to provide EVERY student a FREE breakfast, EVERY morning!
A healthy breakfast can provide children with the energy and nutrients they need to thrive; increasing punctuality, attendance, alertness, improving behaviour and giving them the motivation to learn.
A £500 start-up grant to buy necessary equipment, such as toasters or a freezer, comes from the National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is funded by the Department for Education's soft drinks industry levy.
In addition to this, we have also been awarded £1,000 from the Kellogg's Breakfast Club Grants Programme. Kellogg’s has been supporting school breakfast clubs for almost 20 years.
This money will specifically be used to help support the running of our Breakfast Club and will aid its future sustainability.
The Breakfast Club, starting after half term, will run from 7.45am to 8.20am daily, and students can expect to see a range of low sugar cereals such as Rice Crispies, Cornflakes, Shreddies, Cheerios, porridge oats and bagels. No other food will be available during this time.
