As far as we are aware, the government is still in the process of making arrangements for free school meals vouchers. We can't be sure how long it will be before this is sorted.
Over the last two weeks, we've tried a couple of different approaches to support our families. In week 1, school provided bags of shopping for families to make sandwiches and this week, the local authority provided ready-made sandwiches. This week, we have noticed that there is a lot of food waste (as many families have chosen not to collect the packed lunches).
In order to avoid food wastage next week, we are trying a new approach. The local authority will provide food parcels to those families that want them. This is one parcel that can be collected on one day, (reducing the number of times you are asked to come to school). Parcels will be available for collection from 11am on Monday 18th January. Please book your food parcel by contacting the school office.
