Dear Head Teacher
I wish to assure you that we will be continuing to provide all children attending your school with a meal. This extends to a packed lunch for Free School meal children in isolation (FSM not UISFM). From next week it will essentially be business as usual. Your meals will continue to be prepared/delivered as before. If you have a Free School meal pupil in isolation it will be the schools responsibility to ensure that pupil receives their packed lunch. Menus may well be different, but I’m sure you’ll bear with us in this ever-changing situation.
The meals service will also be extended over the Easter Holidays to ensure all children continue to have a midday meal.
We will be working towards preparing packed lunches in a small number of our larger production kitchens and delivering them direct to your schools. We will be making the necessary arrangements over the next week and will keep you updated on progress. This will reduce the amount of contact for Caterlink and School staff in accordance with government guidelines.
If you have not already provided Caterlink with your estimated meal numbers please contact Jane Woolf
If you have any other queries please don’t hesitate to contact me,
With kind regards
