Firstly, I hope that you are all keeping well during these troubled times. As you know, we tried to cater for all of our children entitled to free school meals with a “drive-through” packed lunch service, which has worked well for some families.
Unfortunately, due to the government’s latest restrictions on travel and movement, we have had to rethink this system, but we have an alternative strategy whereby we have purchased vouchers for Asda which you can use to buy food for the week in one go, rather than coming to us every day.
Tomorrow, we will be posting out the vouchers (£23 per student which is the equivalent of the allotted £2.30 a day for 10 days) and we hope they will arrive soon and this will enable you to ensure your child has sufficient food. Out of goodwill, we will back date this and this will cover this week and next too, ensuring enough coverage until the Easter holidays.
