18th January 2018
We will be offering Years 7-11 the opportunity to have breakfast from next Monday, 22nd January in the Canopy from 8.00 until 8.30 a.m. I have consulted with the School Council about offering breakfast and the students feel there is a need for this initiative.
Students will be able to buy a drink, (Tea, hot chocolate, milk or fruit juice) as well as
a piece of toast or a home baked apple and raisin flapjack or a bowl of cereal
for a total cost of £1.20.
Additionally, students may purchase any of the following
Canteen staff will be flexible about purchases and do their best to respond to individual needs.
I am sure there will be some teething problems and we may need to change the menu. The Catering Manager and I are keen to continue to discuss options with the students about what we offer and respond to their views.
I realise this may mean that parents/carers will wish to increase the daily amount of money they allocate for meals. We have agreed with Norse, our catering provider, that students may spend a maximum of £6.00 per day on food.
We will trial this for a month to see if it is viable. If enough students show interest, we will continue to offer this service for the rest of the year.
We know from speaking with our students that a significant minority do not eat breakfast before they leave home but we know it is such an important meal. We hope that this may encourage more of our young people to eat something before lessons start.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about this.
