National Schools Breakfast Programme
We are delighted to be working in partnership with the National Schools Breakfast Programme to provide a free breakfast for all students at the start of the school day. Through the programme any student at Dixons City Academy will be able to receive a free breakfast of bagels or cereal in the canteen every morning from 7.45am to 8.10am.
According to research from the British Nutritional Foundation:
- One in four secondary school children say they start the day without breakfast
- Over two thirds (65 percent) of children aged from 5 to 16 years are not drinking enough water
Our Purpose is Excellence at DCA and it is much easier to achieve your full potential when you have had enough food to eat. As the novelist Mark Frost said,
“The first prerequisite of elaborate mental exercise was a full stomach"
