Our school has joined the government’s National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is being delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast. As a NSBP School we are pleased to offer a free, healthy school breakfast, available to all, and enjoy the benefits that brings, with children settled and ready to learn at the start of the school day.
Victoria Lane Academy is proud to be a National School Breakfast Programme school. We are happy to offer a healthy breakfast to all our children and we would welcome your child to join us for a great start to the day.
From Monday 14th January, our breakfast starts at 8.40am every day and everyone is welcome! All children can access a healthy, free and delicious breakfast bagel. School gates will open at 8.40 am, for all children to go straight into class, to read alongside staff and their peers and receive a breakfast bagel, with a spreadable topping of their choice. This will ensure our school day gets off to a great start!
Nursery pupils will also receive a free breakfast. The Nursery will open promptly at 8.45am so all of the nursery children can have breakfast together.
Normal Breakfast Club paid provision will continue and will be renamed Early Birds Breakfast Club. This now begins at the earlier time of 8am and the charge is for the childcare element. There will be a wider range of breakfast on offer as the government is now supplying the foods available. Children attending the Early Birds provision will go to class at 8.45am to join the rest of their class and receive a bagel portion too if they would like one.
We hope to see as many children as possible taking up this free breakfast and reading opportunity. Please can you bring your child in as soon as you can after 8.40am so the breakfast bagels are nice and hot but they will be stored in insulated bags to keep them warm.
