National School Breakfast Programme
We have been fortunate enough to secure funding from the National School Breakfast Programme to provide breakfast for every child at Tyndale Primary.
Upon entry to the classroom every morning, all pupils are offered a portion of a toasted bagel or a bowl of cereal.
If your child has any specific dietary requirements, please ensure that our office is already aware of this so that we can offer an alternative if required.
Research has shown that offering pupils in primary schools a free and nutritious meal before school can boost their reading, writing, and maths results by an average of two months’ additional progress, so we are delighted that our school has secured this provision.
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 commited to supporting child development, and we believe a healthy
school breakfast, without barrier or stigma, can set up children to succeed and give them
the very best chance to learn.
About the Programme
Building on the success of the National School Breakfast Programme, Family Action can
offer 2500 schools a place on the new National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP).
The programme will run from July 2021 to July 2023, providing schools with up to 2 years of
support to run a successful and affordable school breakfast provision. The offer is
available to all schools who have 50% or more children in IDACI bands A-F.
The National School Breakfast Programme will provide:
• Up to two terms of healthy free food delivered to your school from September 2021 to March 2022.
• Schools will then receive up to four terms of subsidised food, and will be asked to contribute just 25% towards the supply and delivery of breakfast food from April 2022 to July 2023.
• A knowledgeable school support team, will be on hand to provide remote advice and support to help you get the most from your breakfast provision.
• Good practice sharing opportunities, resources and the opportunity to learn from a national network of schools.
• The opportunity to enhance parental engagement on healthy eating and the importance of having a nutritious breakfast each morning.
Family Action will work with schools to...
• Identify and target children who would benefit most from a regular, free healthy breakfast, so that they and their families feel able to access the support, without barrier or stigma.
• Share the compelling evidence and research that supports why it is so important for children to have free access to a nutritious breakfast at the start of every school day.
