The National School Breakfast Programme
A nutritious healthy breakfast at the start of the school day can have an incredible impact on a child's readiness to learn, concentration, behaviour, punctuality and wellbeing.
This evidence is supported by the findings from research by the Education Endowment Fund (EEF) in 2016, which showed Year 2 pupils in schools with a breakfast club, made the equivalent of around 2 months’ additional progress in reading, writing and mathematics, compared to Year 2 pupils in the other schools in the trial .
We are delighted to be able to offer a FREE Breakfast provision in school for our children.
The breakfast, provided by the National School Breakfast Programme, runs from 8:35am and includes bagels and gluten free cereal.
The National School Breakfast Programme is funded by the Department for Education and run by Family Action to support schools in England to provide children with a healthy breakfast at the start of the school day.
Family Action is committed to supporting child development, and believe a healthy school breakfast, without barrier or stigma, can set up children to succeed and give them the very best chance to learn.
In a normal school year, schools are open just over half the year (taking into account weekends and school holidays). This means even where breakfast is available within school, children are still having breakfast at home almost 50% of the time.
Below, you will find tips, ideas, information, recipes, videos and quizzes to make breakfast time an easy part of your morning routine at home.
