Free bagels for all
Pupils at The Nottingham Academy are being offered a free healthy breakfast each morning.
Bagels are served to pupils before they start their school day in a bid to boost academic performance.
The academy has joined the government's National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is being delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast.
The aim of the programme is to improve the pupils’ concentration because research shows at least half a million children in the UK arrive at school each day too hungry to learn.
The breakfast aims to give pupils energy, protein, vitamins and minerals, and will be low in sugar, salt and fat.
Bagels will be served Monday to Friday between 8:00am to 8:20am, which can be eaten in the Dining Room or it can be taken away.
Staff will be present to supervise pupils during this time.
