Question reference: S6W-27078

  • Asked by: Liam Kerr, MSP for North East Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
  • Date lodged: 26 April 2024
  • Current status: Answered by Natalie Don on 9 May 2024


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-23633 by Jenny Gilruth on 21 December 2023, whether it has now completed the work to develop a clear picture of the scale and uptake of breakfast provision across Scotland, which was scheduled to be completed in spring 2024, and whether it will consider publishing, or otherwise making available, this work.


The Scottish Government has committed to develop plans to deliver free breakfasts to all primary and special school children.

As noted in the response to question S6W-22746 on 17 November 2023, the Scottish Government is currently working with Assist FM and Improvement Service to develop a clear picture of the scale, uptake and delivery models of breakfast provision across Scotland both at Local Authority and schools' level. We expect the data from that exercise to be submitted to Scottish Government in June 2024. This will then inform the government’s approach.
