I started the day early at Carr Manor High School's brilliant breakfast club...
The breakfast club is seven years old and had won the national Kellogg's Breakfast Club award. The breakfast club team were presented with the award and a big cheque by Fabian Hamilton the local MP.
With 41 different first languages at the school, the breakfast club has brought together students from many different cultures and backgrounds and created a genuine family atmosphere to start the day. The club has also helped improved attendance and punctuality at the school as well as help develop resilience and anti-bullying approaches. It was great to be able to attend the ceremony with Fabian along with representatives from Kellogg’s and learning charity ContinYou. Kellogg’s Breakfast Club Programme supports around 100 new breakfast clubs every year so if you are interested visit their website at www.kelloggs.co.uk/whatson/breakfastclub/set-up-breakfast-club/
