Good Morning and apologies for disturbing you on Saturday morning.
Unfortunately, I’ve been informed that a member of our kitchen staff has tested positive for Coronavirus this morning. Therefore, most if not all of our kitchen staff have been advised to self-isolate. This means we are unable to provide any Brunch service on Monday and a very limited lunch service.
We have arranged with our caterers for pre-packed sandwiches, water and fruit to be available for those students on Free School meals. Therefore, I have to request that as no lunch service is available parents provide their children with a packed lunch for Monday and probably moving forward throughout the week. We will work with our caterers to try and provide a hot food option later in the week. To clarify then- pre-packed sandwiches are available for students on Free School meals- all other students will require a packed lunch Monday and potentially the rest of the week.
I will contact Public Health England to discuss this and as always will update you when I have further information.
