We had a young student that was consistently late to school most mornings, he came in with a foul mood as he had been arguing with Mum most of the morning as she wanted him in school on time. He used to eat breakfast at home. He now eats breakfast at school, this allows him an extra 15 minutes in the mornings to wake up slower and he has a more positive time in the morning with Mum and arrives to school with a much better attitude knowing he will have something to eat when he arrives.
Mum is very grateful and has said to staff on multiple occasions ‘he’s a completely different boy and I don’t have to argue with him every morning to get him up, dressed and food in his belly.’”
Having breakfast at school makes a big impact across a child’s education.Our impact
