This week Rye Community Primary school joined the National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP) which is funded by the Department for Education and delivered by Family Action to support schools in England to provide children with a healthy breakfast at the start of the school day.
Evidence has shown that pupils benefit from having a healthy, nutritious breakfast each morning to enable them to access learning.
All children at Rye Community Primary School are provided with bagels which are delivered to classrooms at the start of the school day.
Kelly Martin, headteacher said, “We are excited to be part of the National School Breakfast Programme. This is a great opportunity to not only give our students a nutritious breakfast at the start of the school day but also to impact on their readiness to learn, behaviour, punctuality and wellbeing.”
Rye Community Primary School was also delighted to also be awarded £1,000 by Kellogg’s to enhance its breakfast club and help feed children in the morning.
Miss Martin continued, “I would like to give special congratulations to my assistant inclusion leader, Mrs McDonald, who was successful in bidding for this funding. These resources will help us to continue to provide our breakfast club services for our children, thanks to the support from Kellogg’s.”
