A letter from Swanwick Primary School...

Good News!

Zest Breakfast Club at Swanwick Primary School.

Many thanks to Valley CIDS for their support in helping us to improve the life chances of our most vulnerable children. This term we have been piloting a scheme offering breakfast club places to some of our pupils who find it most difficult to get a good start to the day and make the most of their time in school.

As a school, we have used some of our government provided Pupil Premium budget to fund the places. The impact has been tremendous in terms of pupil attainment and educational achievement. However, we are also delighted with the social impact on our children. Not only are they receiving a nutritious breakfast, served in a calm environment, they have the opportunity to develop greater social skills with a wider range of children. Many are accessing games and activities which they do not do elsewhere. All are them coming to class ready to learn.

We are very grateful for the partnership we have with Valley CIDS and our shared vision in improving the lives of our children.
