Dinners in School
Posted 13/5/2020 at 11.55am.
Children attending school will eat their lunch in their allocated classroom with their group. They will be supported over lunchtime by a member of our welfare team. The same member of welfare staff will always support the same group. The children will have a chance to play outside with their group once they have finished their lunch but the children will social distance during this time.
For the first few weeks as a minimum, we will be unable to prepare a hot meal at lunchtime due to the constraints of social distancing both in the preparation of food and in serving that food to your child. Children are welcome to bring in a packed lunch from home. Alternatively the kitchen staff will be able to prepare a lunch for your child. Your child will be able to choose a sandwich filling and will have a piece of fruit, a pudding and a drink. We will review the preparation of hot food after the first week that the children are back in school. When you confirm that your child will be returning to school, please could you also confirm if they will need a school meal.
School meals will be charged as usual - £2.30 per meal. However YR and Y1 children will be entitled to a free meal under the universal infant school meal scheme and any children on free school meals will not be charged for a school lunch.
