The Academy Day
The typical working day at the Academy runs from 8:55 to 15:30. We would advise you not to send your child to the Academy more than 10 minutes before 8:55. The Breakfast Club takes place before the working day starts. All children are welcome to attend and the club runs each weekday. Please contact us for more information about the Breakfast Club.
Every class provides healthy breakfast bagels so every student can start the day completely nourished and ready to learn.
This service is run by Family Action, in partnership with Magic Breakfast, and is funded by the Department for Education. It works to support more than 1700 schools in disadvantaged communities across the country to improve access to healthy breakfasts and learning.
The service aims to:
- Ensure more children receive a healthy breakfast at the start of their day.
- Improve educational outcomes of disadvantaged young people
- Share best practices across schools and encourage innovative approaches to school breakfast provision.
