Free School Meals

New Starters Information - Alsop Catering Department September 2020

Due to the changes we have made to ensure the safety of all our pupils and staff, the ‘normal’ catering services have been changed until further notice.

We will not be serving a cooked breakfast or hot beverages before school.

From 3rd September 2020: between 8.00 and 8.20am all pupils can get a complimentary bagel at their designated entry point before going to their classroom.

Lunch times will be staggered and served in three separate dining areas. Your child will be informed of their specific areas.

Lunches will consist of a hot meat-based meal or a hot vegetarian option, plus a drink and dessert. The menu cycle is displayed above on the website and this will be repeated for the first six weeks and then reviewed accordingly.

For those pupils not wanting a hot meal we advise the bringing in of a ‘healthy’ packed lunch as there will not be any alternatives to the stated menu items. We also advise each pupil bring in a bottle of water to ensure they are kept hydrated throughout the day.

If your child has any specific dietary requirements please let the Catering Manager know asap. or telephone on 0151 235 1237

From Monday 14th September 2020 lunches will be charged for at a set price of £2 per day. (except for pupils on FSM who will continue to get their meal as usual)

As stated on a recent communication, we no longer accept cash as payment for food/drink and therefore all monies for lunches will need to go through either ParentPay or Pay Point.
