A NATIONAL cereal manufacturer has awarded £1,000 to four schools in Solihull to enhance their breakfast clubs.
The Oaklands Primary School, Cockshut Hill School, Lyndon School and Ninestiles, all part of the Summit Learning Trust were awarded the funding by Kellogg as part of their recent campaign.
The academies were selected to receive this boost as Kellogg’s announced it is donating more money to support breakfast clubs, at a time when schools are increasingly struggling to find the budget to fund this provision for their most vulnerable pupils.
Breakfast clubs help with everything from attendance and attainment to alleviating hunger and providing pre-school care.
Vince Green, CEO of Summit Learning Trust said: “We are extremely grateful to receive these generous Kellogg’s grants for our children. As a trust we are committed to providing free breakfast for any child that requires it, to ensure that they can all start every school day ready to learn.”
Kate Prince, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at Kellogg’s, said: “We’re proud to have spent over 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.”
