A school in Redditch has been chosen as a finalist for the West Midlands as part of the annual Kellogg’s Breakfast Club Awards.

If it wins, Team Ipsley Breakfast Club will receive a £1,000 cash prize, plus a special party pack to help them celebrate.

The Kellogg’s Breakfast Club Awards champion the people and activities that make Breakfast Clubs so great – from inspirational volunteers to invaluable extra learning sessions.

Around 20 children attend Team Ipsley Breakfast Club every morning before school. Andrew Duffin and Sue Mason providing the children with a daily breakfast and monitor their emotional health. Andrew created a spaceman mood board for the children, where they would move their spaceman up towards the moon depending on how positive they were feeling that morning before school.

Dana Curtis, Team Leader at Ipsley CE RSA Academy said: “We are really excited and incredibly proud to be shortlisted.

“If we’re lucky enough to win we’ll spend the prize money on various food and drink so that our children learn about different tastes and food from around the world. We would also invest in more equipment like smoothie machines and frying pans to keep the menu fun and interesting.”

The aim of this year’s Kellogg’s Breakfast Club Awards is to recognise schools all over the UK for the incredible role they have played to educate and safeguard children throughout this pandemic.

A specialist panel of judges will assess the 52 shortlisted entries across the UK and the winners will be announced on Wednesday, February 10.
