· We are pleased to be able to start offering hot lunches again in September. Please find the menu attached. It is slightly reduced from normal but is still a nourishing and varied menu. These will start on the second week back to give time for our new lunchtime routines to be embedded. During the first week back, a cold sandwich option will be offered for those children who have a school meal.
· EYFS and Year 1 will eat their lunch in the hall as normal, at staggered times. Years 2 to 6 will eat lunch in their classrooms to avoid mixing of children in the hall. Meals will be brought to the classroom for children.
· In order to maximise efficiency and make the lunchtime system as smooth as possible, we would like children to select their meal choices in advance. Every week, from the second week onwards, Mrs Miller will email out a Microsoft Forms link for children to select their choice of hot meal for each day. We ask that this is completed by the Friday before (i.e. the choices for week beginning Monday 14th September need to be completed by Friday 11th September). This will then allow the staff to cater for the exact number of meals needed without the paper-based administration of menu slips. It will also enable staff to deliver the correct meals straight to the classrooms rather than children having to wait to be served.
· If you are unable to complete the Form, then please contact the office and Mrs Miller will do this on your behalf. If the Form is not completed and a school lunch still ordered, there may be limited choice for your child on the day and they may be served a cold meal.
