Change to school lunches due to Covid-19 restrictions
Whilst we are still working under Covid restrictions and the need for junior children to eat in their classrooms, we have devised a healthy, balanced menu which includes many of our children’s favourites!
The interim menu will offer:
A 2 week rolling menu
The choice of a hot main meal or a sandwich
A choice of dessert
We will also be moving to an online selection form.
This only needs to be completed once in order to establish your child’s meal pattern.
The form is quick and easy. There is one for junior children and one for infant children. You will need to complete one for each child in school.
It will ask you to:
- Provide your email
- Provide your child’s name and class
- Select your child’s main meal options
(Children will be able to select their own desserts daily.)
Your chosen meal options will then be fixed for the 2 week rolling menu.
This will allow us to speedily prepare our lunches, ensuring all children receive their chosen option.
Note – Due to the universal free lunch offer, we assume that all infant children will select school lunches every day.
Selecting school lunches on given days – junior children
We would prefer that junior children do not mix packed lunches brought from home and school dinners, but we realise that some parents may prefer this option. However, we do not have the flexibility to allow school lunches on ‘odd days’. All lunch selections must be a fixed pattern.
- The days you choose in Week 1 must also be the same for Week 2 eg if you choose Tuesday from Week 1, you must also select Tuesday from Week 2.
- You cannot choose Tuesday in Week 1 only and Wednesday in Week 2 only.
These requirements are due to the online payment system.
Junior children bringing packed lunches from home every day
Please ensure you complete a form for Junior children who do not require a school lunch on any day. You should select the option: “Bringing a school lunch from home” for each day.
