Update on school dinners
Thank you for your patience with school dinners and the changes we have had in adapting to our new lunchtime routines. Thanks to Suzie, our cook in charge at the moment, who has been doing a great job leading the kitchen staff throughout these challenging times when we have had to adapt to doing things a bit differently in order to be 'Covid safe'.
Suzie will continue to lead the team until we welcome Alison back from her maternity leave on 9th November.
We have planned a new rota for after half term which means that more children will be able to eat in the school hall. We will have two members of staff in the hall who will clean tables and chairs between each bubble.
We will also be moving to a FULL HOT MEAL menu after half term. As the weather gets colder we appreciate that many children will want to eat a hot meal at lunch time.
We have adapted our hot trolley systems and will have extra capacity for hot meals to ensure the full menu is able to be offered.
We will also be returning to the system where when your child is on school dinners, we ask that if they want to move on to packed lunches (and vice versa) that you give one weeks notice to the office please.
The new menu is available for you to see, we will send the child friendly version of this as soon as we receive this from the catering company.
