Book & a Bagel (National School Breakfast Programme)

We are delighted to offer a FREE bagel provision in school for our children. Bagels are provided by the National School Breakfast Programme and are given to children as they come into school from 8.40am to enjoy with a book or a story. The programme also provides cereals for our breakfast club.

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.

Feedback from our children has been fantastic!

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:
