Dear Parent or Carer,
Re: Change to Morning Break Food Offer
Following consultation with parents, carers and pupils I am pleased to inform you that as of Monday, November 26th, food will be available at morning break (11:00- 11:15am) to all pupils. This information has already been shared with pupils today via form tutors. The arrangements are as follows:
Year Groups 9, 10 & 11 will be in the Main Dining Room
Year Groups 7 & 8 will be in the Grab & Go
The food on offer will be that which we currently sell and will change each day. It includes bacon rolls, cheese on toast, waffles, cakes, biscuits and other savoury goods. As the new arrangements take effect we will revise this offer in response to pupil and parent/ carer feedback.
Later this term we will also make adjustments to the way lunch time operates to ensure a better distribution and choice of food to all pupils. We also intend to move in the future entirely to ParentPay, removing the facility for pupils to load money on their accounts during the day. This means that they will no longer need to carry large amounts of cash to school. We will, of course, ensure that families who do not have access to the internet are supported in this transition and we are keen to you’re your views on the matter.
I hope you feel that these developments are positive ones that take account of the needs of pupils and are to the benefit of their learning and welfare. My thanks to the parents and carers who have offered their ideas and suggestions on improving break and lunch time catering arrangements.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you wish to discuss this matter further.
