The impact of free school breakfasts on academic performance is to be analysed in a year-long study by the Education Endowment Foundation. The research, which will involve 36,000 children in 200 schools in England, will compare schemes where all pupils get a free breakfast and those where breakfasts are given only to children eligible for free school meals. It will examine breakfast clubs run by the charity Magic Breakfast. In a separate scheme, the charity is looking to recruit 184 schools, which will be supported to set up breakfast clubs and will receive a year's worth of free food from September 2014. In order to qualify, at least 35 per cent of pupils must be eligible for free school meals. For more information, go to www.magicbreakfast.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org
