Byron Breakfast club means healthy children, ready to learn

Oasis Academy Byron, Coulsdon, is collaborating with Amazon to create a breakfast club so that every pupil can start their day off right with a good meal. 

The breakfast club founded by charity Magic Breakfast and now supported by Amazon, provides the pupils with a healthy breakfast and start to the day.

The Amazon team recently paid a surprise visit to the school and helped dish up a healthy breakfast of cereals, bagels, toast, juice, milk and tea to fuel hungry schoolchildren for the morning of learning ahead of them.

Clare Wingrave, Principal at Oasis Academy Byron, said: "Magic Breakfast provision is having a big impact on our school, with pupils enjoying time each morning to socialise and read before starting their lessons settled and ready to learn.

“The Oasis Academy Byron is delighted to be one of the schools whose breakfast provision is supported by Amazon and we look forward to the opportunities this new partnership will bring to the whole school community".

As well as a nutritious breakfast, a specialist member of Magic Breakfast staff is holding advice sessions with the Academy and our pupils’ parents so that everyone knows more about health eating and good nutrition.

Chris Fisher, delivery station manager at Amazon in Croydon, said: “A good primary education plays such an important role in helping kids build the skills and confidence they need to succeed in today’s increasingly high-skilled economy.

“Every child, regardless of background, should get an equal chance to excel at school, and hunger should not be a barrier to getting a great education.

“We’re delighted to be partnered with the Oasis Academy helping children at the school to get a healthy, nutritious breakfast to improve concentration, boost attendance, and ultimately help them learn a lot more.”
