IMPORTANT – LUNCHTIME ARRANGEMENTS FOR SEPTEMBER 2020
Due to Covid19 and all the implications surrounding the pandemic, we have had to have a major rethink of our lunchtime arrangements to ensure all our children receive their school dinners in a safe environment.
To ensure our children are within their social bubble and social distancing takes place during their lunchtime, as well as them having the space required to ensure these measures, we have had to set up some new dining areas within the school to ensure everyone gets a nutritious, safe meal and lunchtime break.
Lunchtimes will now be staggered for each year group; however, we will still be catering for a large number of children. Another issue is cash handling, which is also proven to be a conduit for the distribution of Covid19.
To counteract the above, and to set up something which will be a much lower risk for our children, we are proposing to have your child’s meal ready for them on their desk when they arrive at their allocated dining room.
To enable this to happen, we would like you to now preorder your child’s meals and snacks via ParentPay.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are in receipt of free school meals, you will still need to go to ParentPay and choose your child’s meal options so they can be prepared by the catering staff.
School meals must only be paid for through the ParentPay system, no cash payment will be accepted.
If you have not received a letter via text informing you of your ParentPay account details or have any further questions, please email Mrs Lunn at firstname.lastname@example.org
