Colburn Primary School pupils are enjoying free bagels for a year from the government scheme run by the charity, Magic Breakfast.

Hot toasted bagels are served by bagel monitors on the playground every morning, and are available to all children and their families.

Bagels are also available from the school office for children arriving late to ensure no child goes hungry.

Debbie Nicholas, Colburn Primary interim head teacher, said: “We are already seeing the benefits of offering everyone a healthy breakfast before lessons, with children now settled and ready to learn in the first classes of the day.

“We are delighted to have signed up to the National School Breakfast Programme.”
