Primary School children will take their SATS exams this week, but last year a fifth of children sat one or more of their exams hungry.

In response to the figures Ford Primary School in Plymouth is providing free breakfasts for those taking the tests.

The exams for year 6 pupils cover the three core subjects, English, Maths and Science, with results going towards the school's placing in national League Tables.
