Situation

Exam season has always been a nervous time for students, but for today’s schoolchildren – having faced 2 years of disrupted lessons, cancelled tests and virtual learning – this year’s exams pose an even bigger obstacle. Disadvantaged pupils, who have been disproportionally affected by learning loss during the pandemic, are falling even further behind their peers. Thousands of students will sit their exams with empty stomachs, struggling to concentrate and having missed out on crucial learning.

Solution

To level the playing field for disadvantaged children this exam season, Magic Breakfast will be running Fuel for Success, a campaign to highlight the impact child morning hunger has on educational attainment and raise 1 million breakfasts. Because no student should have their education put at risk due to hunger. By providing children with a nutritious breakfast, we can fuel their success and their future.
