Covid Response under the National School Breakfast Programme
Our school has signed up to receive free healthy breakfast food as part of the COVID response offer, under the National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP). This is being delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast.
As part of this government-funded programme, schools can choose to offer children a healthy breakfast at school or at home. Our plan at Ashwood is to provide a ‘grab and go’ breakfast of bagel or cereals when children enter school. This is to ensure that children are never too hungry to learn while we cannot run our usual breakfast club.
The benefits of a healthy breakfast include children being settled and ready to learn at the start of the day!
You will be receiving a letter shortly but I wanted to tell you about this new exciting initiative now.
