The local authority is proposing to change its approach to supporting pupils who are eligible for free school meals from the current sandwich provision to a delivered five day food hamper. For pupils with special dietary requirements eg vegetarian, a five day frozen meal option is available as an alternative.
The local authority will assume that all pupils registered as eligible for free school meals will require a delivered food parcel (or frozen meal) unless parents/carers opt-out of this arrangement. If you wish for your child to receive a food parcel, you do not need to do anything. If however, you do not wish your child to receive a food parcel, please inform me no later than 5:00pm on Tuesday 21 April, 2020. If your child has a special dietary requirement please email: Robin.firstname.lastname@example.org
