Changes to Catering Services

Dear Parent/Carer,

I hope you and your family are well. I am writing to you to inform you of an update to the current catering service that we are able to provide, which will take place from Monday 30th November. Firstly, I would like to thank you for your support in what has been a challenging time for our catering staff and commend pupils on the excellent behaviour they have demonstrated when using the canteen facilities at lunchtime.

As you are aware pupils have been limited to selecting either a single hot food option at lunchtime or a cold meal, with a set price of £2.40 that included a drink. With effect from 30th November the Catering Service will be expanding the choice of food available to purchase. The changes are listed below:

  • The hot food option has increased from 1 to 2 per day, with the cost of meal being £1.85.
  • There will now be four baguette options instead of two. The cost of a baguette will be £1.56.
  • There are now three cake options, costing 47p, 65p or 74p each.
  • Drinks available are – water 45p, fruit juice 50p or Capri sun 62p.

Pupils will now have more choice at lunchtime and can buy individual items that were previously part of a meal, a cake by itself for example. I wanted to make you aware of this as your child may spend more or less than they would have previously as they can purchase individual items and are not restricted to the set price of £2.40 when purchasing a meal.  I have attached the new menus to this letter to give you further information.

If you have any queries, please do not contact to hesitate me.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. Christopher Mitchell

Care, Support and Guidance Coordinator
