Stephanie is encouraging local schools to apply for the Kellogg’s Breakfast Club Awards.

Recognising the incredible role breakfast clubs play in ensuring children are fed and ready to learn in the morning, Kellogg’s will be awarding 12 schools across the UK a grant of £1000.

Teachers estimate that if a child arrives at school once a week hungry, they will lose 1 hour of learning on that day. If this happens once a week for the school year, they could lose 36 hours a year. This is equivalent to 1.4 school weeks a year.

This could mean a child missing out on learning essential skills, like reading and writing. In the longer term, hunger could also affect exam results, which in turn could impact on their future prospects and social mobility.

Ms Peacock said

“With over a quarter of children in Barnsley East growing up in poverty, breakfast clubs offer local schoolchildren a vital chance to have a proper meal before they begin learning.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our breakfast clubs and schools for their important contribution and encourage them all to apply for one of these exciting grants.”
