Breakfast Club

The Greggs Foundation 

Beacon ACE Academy are lucky enough to be sponsored by the Greggs foundation which allows us to run the school breakfast club free of charge. The programme was established in 1999 to help primary school children get a nutritious start to their school day.

Every school is provided with fresh bread from their nearest Gregg shop, and a grant to support start-up and ongoing costs.

A healthy breakfast is a great start to 'every' day

The familiar saying ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ is overwhelmingly supported by research findings. However, despite knowledge of its benefits, skipping breakfast remains common practice with one in seven school aged children.

Children who have eaten breakfast are able to more efficiently select critical information during problem-solving tasks; perform better in both mathematical and creative tasks; and demonstrate improved accuracy on a range of cognitive function tests. 

Children love breakfast club because they’re able to take part in lots of fun activities with their friends before lessons start.
