National School Breakfast Programme

National School Breakfast Programme

Linden Primary School has joined the government’s National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is being delivered by two charities: Family Action and Magic Breakfast.

As a NSBP school we are pleased to offer free bagels in each of the classrooms from 8.45am for the children to help themselves to. The bagels provide a good source of important nutrients which the body needs. Research shows that if these essential nutrients are missed at breakfast, they are less likely to be compensated for later in the day. The benefits that this brings to our children is that they are settled and ready to learn at the start of the school day and not distracted by hunger.

Magic Breakfast is a charity registered in England (no. 1102510) and Scotland (no. SC048202) ensuring that no child is too hungry to learn through the provision of healthy breakfast food and expert support to schools. A hungry child cannot concentrate so will miss out on half a day of lessons, every day, if not given anything to eat.

To date, more than 500 schools across the country have benefitted from the National School Breakfast Programme. The Magic Breakfast project provides 106 schools with support and resources to offer a free, universal breakfast. The aim of the project was to improve attainment outcomes by increasing the number of children who eat a healthy breakfast.
