Update for Parent/Carers – Changes to our Lunch Arrangements

Good afternoon all. Firstly, we please apologise for sending an update over the weekend but we felt that this was necessary and that you would appreciate the advanced notice.
Earlier today, we received notification that our entire school kitchen staff (who are employed by an external company called Chartwells) are to self-isolate with immediate effect. That means that for tomorrow (and possibly beyond) we will be offering a packed lunch ‘grab bag’ option only. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate that this is far from ideal. We wanted to let you know beforehand so that you could, if you wanted to, make alternative arrangements for your child’s lunch e.g. sending them into school with their own packed lunch. This is purely your choice and there is absolutely no need to do this as we will be providing a lunch, it just will not be a hot option.
Chartwells are trying to source appropriate cover staff so that we can get back to normal as quickly as possible. As soon as this is in place, we will let you all know.
Enjoy what is left of the weekend and the glorious sunshine.
Take care and stay safe.
The Florence Melly team.
