We are delighted to be working in partnership with the National Schools Breakfast Programme to provide a free breakfast for all students at the start of the school day. Through the NSBP’s “Magic Breakfast” any student at Dixons Cottingley Academy will be able to receive a free breakfast of bagels, cereal or fruit in the canteen every morning from 7.45am to 8.10am.
According to research from the British Nutritional Foundation:
- One in four secondary school children say they start the day without breakfast
- Over two thirds (65 percent) of children aged from 5 to 16 years are not drinking enough water
