School Dinners

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Thank you very much for all your patience and understanding with the National free school meal scheme that has been in operation since 6th April. I very much appreciate your understanding with this at this very challenging and difficult time for all of us.  Fortunately, the websites are now working much faster than even a few weeks ago and it appears that most of the problems we have all been experiencing have now been resolved.

 

For those who have received eCodes this term, the school’s account shows that they have all been sent.  The Government will not be running the scheme through any future holidays so the next eCodes will be distributed from Monday 1st June.

 

We have decided to send out next term’s eCodes on a weekly basis, except for the first two weeks when you will all get a fortnight’s worth  – you will receive this in the first week of term.

 

For week 3 (Monday 15th June) we will send eCodes out depending on attendance from the previous week – so if your Year R child attended in Week 2 of term you would not get an eCode for the third week of term.

 

This system will ensure you have £3 per day to help feed your child if they are at home and we will provide a free packed lunch meal if they are at school (the school kitchen is not doing hot meals in Term 6).  We will keep a record of all daily attendance and issued eCodes so that you receive your overall eCode entitlement across the term.  We believe this is the only way to run the system which fits around the decisions we have made around reopening up the school.

 

Please remember that if you are struggling and need some support with food at this time, please contact Lesley, our Pastoral Manager & FLO, on the following number: 07890 161 150

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to get back to me.

 

Kind regards and stay safe

Mr Forwood

SCHOOL MEALS AT BIRCHINGTON CE PRIMARY SCHOOL

 

Although some children prefer to bring a packed lunch to school, we can also provide a well balanced hot meal for your child every day.

 

            

 

   

 

LUNCHTIME

Our pupils really enjoy their school lunch! A well balanced and mixed menu is provided and unlike many schools our dinners are prepared in our own Kitchen, fresh on the day. We also provide a packed lunch option consisting of a filled baguette, yogurt pot, a slice of cake, a piece of fruit and a drink.

 

While our aim is to ensure that our pupils receive a well balanced diet we also appreciate that children occasionally deserve a treat - so more obvious children’s choices are still available from time to time!
