Schools Apply for Magic Breakfast provision Magic Breakfast could help your school! Do you have children arriving at school without having eaten breakfast? Are you noticing the effects of hunger in the classroom? Do you want to ensure every pupil has the right fuel for learning? Your school may be eligible for support via the National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), funded by the Department for Education, which Magic Breakfast is delivering in partnership with Family Action. The NSBP Covid-19 Breakfast response is currently offering support to schools in disadvantaged communities across England to improve access to healthy breakfasts during the pandemic. From Autumn 2020, a revised programme will be offered to up to 650 schools not already benefiting from the NSBP, within disadvantaged communities, including the Department for Education’s 12 opportunity areas. Schools will be offered breakfast delivery grants and deliveries of healthy food to ensure all children who need it can access breakfast, at home or at school. For more details please follow the link, below, to Family Action's website, where you can fill in an Expression of Interest Form for the National School Breakfast Programme. https://www.family-action.org.uk/what-we-do/children-families/breakfast/ The National School Breakfast Programme only covers England, however Magic Breakfast (on its own) does operate in Scotland. A Primary School in Scotland qualifies for Magic Breakfast support when at least 55% of pupils are in SIMD Deciles 1 to 4 and/or at least 35% are eligible for FSM. A Secondary School qualifies for support when at least 40% of pupils are in SIMD Deciles 1 to 4. We are researching the case for expanding to Northern Ireland and Wales so welcome applications from all UK schools in areas of disadvantage who have pupils at risk of hunger in the morning and for whom pupil hunger acts as a barrier to teaching. Please fill in an online "Expression of Interest" Form for Magic Breakfast (not NSBP) support by clicking on the link below: Magic Breakfast Expression of Interest form Once you have submitted your application for support, and we have checked that your eligibility fits our criteria, we will hold your details on file. As soon as we have raised sufficient funding to be able to offer you support, we will get in touch, and you will then get a visit from our School Partner for your region.
