Children’s Basic Needs

More money invested in ensuring that children from lower income households have access to 3 meals a day, as many children come to school hungry and aren’t fed properly in the evening. If basic human needs aren’t met, then effective learning can’t occur, which then also affects behaviour. With a world so focussed on testing, it really affects their ability to concentrate even on the simplest of tasks and therefore has an impact on test scores. In 2020 children shouldn’t be going to bed or waking up hungry.

Funding breakfast clubs for children especially in KS1 and KS2 is a potential suggestion.

On the food bank website it states that 1 in 5 families live below the poverty line so as much should be done to tackle this issue.
