Breakfast clubs linked to boosting pupil attainment and behaviour

The study involved children attending clubs for over a year and was independently evaluated. Improvement was found in the academic performance, behaviour and concentration of pupils involved, compared to a group whose schools did not run breakfast clubs.

An investment of £10m a year on healthy breakfast clubs is aimed to tackle childhood obesity, and the EEF said the introduction of a free, universal breakfast club in all schools would be a cost-effective way to raise pupil attainment.

 Carmel McConnell, chief executive of Magic Breakfast, believes the evidence shows the Magic Breakfast model works and that its time to embed this approach and gain classroom success for every vulnerable child.
