Mill of Mains Primary in Dundee provides toast in class for any child who needs it.
At Mill of Mains Primary, breakfast is toast in class, supported by Pupil Equity Funding. A plate of toast is delivered to all classrooms for children to help themselves and children can also collect toast from the school canteen. The provision of toast allows for the children to eat and learn at the same time and means that children arriving late can still benefit.
A survey by the school showed that about 30% of children had not eaten breakfast before attending so the key aim of this approach is to make sure that children are full and ready to learn. The school also uses PEF to ensure that all children have a snack at break-time. These can be collected from staff in the playground.
