Fazakerley High receives funding to launch breakfast club

Fazakerley High School is launching a new breakfast club this term, after securing funding from Copyrite Systems.

The new breakfast club comes after a successful initiative was launched earlier this year by business manager Wendy Torley.

Wendy was looking at ways to contact the businesses the school works with to see whether they would give something back to the school community.

As a print supplier for the school, Wendy contacted Copyrite Systems who were happy to be involved and provide funding.

Established by Tom Doyle in 1992, Copyrite Systems has been operating for 25 years and its team works in the education sector to transform learning environments and to increase productivity.

Copyrite is the headline sponsor of this year’s Educate Awards, alongside Ricoh UK.

The free breakfast initiative launched during Year 11 exam season and invited students to come in to school early to eat a selection of breakfast items including fruit, toast and bacon rolls.

Many studies show that those who eat breakfast have better concentration, alertness and comprehension ability.

Fazakerley High also used the free breakfast to address attendance and to get students in the right frame of mind before taking their exams.

Due to the success of the free breakfasts and after securing additional funding from Copyrite Systems, Fazakerley is introducing a permanent breakfast club this September.

The club will be offered to pupil premium and disadvantaged students at the school in the hope it will improve attendance, academic attainment and behaviour.

Wendy hopes the new breakfast club will make a big difference to the families in their school community.
