North Tyneside Council has announced its plan to continue to provide Free School Meals for those who are entitled whilst schools are closed to most students. 

A packed lunch will be provided for collection today between the times of 11.00pm and 12.30pm. Collection of the packed lunch should be made from the main reception at school. Collection can be made by either students or parents/carers. 

In line with government guidelines, if you are self-isolating please DO NOT come to school and instead arrange for someone to collect the lunch on your behalf. We are not able to provide dining facilities and request that people are sensible about social distancing and therefore do not remain around the site to socialise.

As a school however, we are urgently investigating other means of providing for our free school meals children and hope to be able to offer a voucher system instead, potentially later this week. More information to follow as soon as we have it.
