The academy is part of a scheme that provides a free breakfast for all students in the academy.
All students are entitled to a breakfast of cereal or a bagel before the school day starts.
Eating a healthy breakfast before starting the school day is linked to:
- Improved concentration
- Better test scores as it enhances memory
- Increased energy and improved physical health
- A higher intake of vitamins and minerals and better eating habits through the day
- A healthier body weight and better mental health.
Breakfast is especially important for young students whose brains use up about half the body’s energy. Young people who eat breakfast showed higher well-being scores, and it has been shown that there’s a positive link between GCSE performance and eating breakfast.
Please encourage your child to join us for a free breakfast each morning.
