To celebrate 20 years of supporting school breakfast clubs, Kellogg’s has awarded The Priory School with £1,000 to enhance their Breakfast Club and help feed children in the morning.
The Priory School, based in Spalding, caters for pupils aged 11 to 16, who have a range of needs including Moderate Learning Difficulties, Autism, SEMH and communication issues.
The Priory School was selected to receive this boost as Kellogg’s announce they are to double their investment in Breakfast Clubs as more and more schools struggle to find the budget to fund this service for their pupils.
Breakfast Clubs help with everything from attendance and attainment to alleviating hunger and providing pre‐school care. 68% of teachers believe pupils would struggle to concentrate in class without their Breakfast Club, according to Kellogg’s research.
Matthew Bloodworth-Flatt, Headteacher said:
“We would like to say a big thank you to Kellogg’s for this funding. The Breakfast Club at The Priory not only improves life at school for pupils, it helps to support learning as a whole, with pupils being more focused during lesson time.”
Kate Prince, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, at Kellogg’s, said:
“We’re proud to have spent 20 years supporting so many schools across the UK. We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, and we know that equipment and resources are just as important to clubs as the food itself.”
Kellogg’s has supported over 3,000 school breakfast clubs with funds, food and training over the last 20 years – that’s 70 million bowls of cereal to children all over the UK since 1998!
