The Wey Valley School in Weymouth has been awarded £1,000 by cereal company Kellogg’s to enhance its breakfast club.

The Wey Valley School was one of many schools throughout the United Kingdom that was selected to receive the breakfast boost.

Kellogg’s has been a champion of school breakfast clubs since 1998 helping thousands of schools with funding and food. Breakfast clubs help with everything from attendance and attainment to alleviating hunger and providing pre-school care. 68 per cent of teachers believe pupils would struggle to concentrate in class without their breakfast club, according to Kellogg’s research.

Sara Adams, Principal at the Wey Valley School said: ‘We are very grateful to receive this generous donation. Our breakfast club has been running for some time now, with over 50 students regularly attending each day’.

Ms Adams added, ‘These funds will most certainly help our Diner facilities and enable more students to access breakfasts, which are available from 7.45am’.

These resources will help us to provide our breakfast club services for our children and their families thanks to the support from Kellogg’s.”

Kate Prince, Corporate Social Responsibility manager, at Kellogg’s, said “We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, but equipment and resources are just as important to clubs as the food itself. We’re proud to be able to support so many schools across the UK.”

Kellogg’s currently has 3000 schools signed up to its network, offering them a range of resources and provisions to help them operate sustainable and effective breakfast clubs.
