Due to school closures, declining pupil numbers, staff shortages and supply chain issues, Dolce will be implementing an emergency menu from Monday 23rd March 2020 until further notice.
All pre orders in place will be cancelled and a new menu for pre ordering has been loaded to the SchoolGrid system.
Please be aware that if you order a hot lunch at home and your child also brings a packed lunch to school. They will be given the hot dinner that has been ordered unless we hear otherwise from you.
If your child is in KS2 and orders a hot dinner in error and this is not cancelled by either the parent or via informing school - you will be charged for the dinner even if it was not taken.
If your child is not in school for morning registration due to a medical appointment or for any other reason and you would like school to order a school dinner for your child, please could you let the office know by 9.30am as this is when the final orders have to be given to the kitchen. Unfortunately if no order has been received by 9.30am, your child will need to bring a packed lunch to school.
Thank you for your support with this
If children are going to be at a medical appointment or be late into school and are wishing to order a school dinner please could they let the office know by 9.30am or order their lunch via the website.
FOR YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE READ
Payment for meals can be made by logging into your live kitchen account by clicking here or on the image below and paying by direct debit, or a payment can be made online.
Please remember to send your email address to the office, so we can forward this on to Dolce for the new dinner procedures.
Dolce is an online dinner provider where parents provide a working email address and a live kitchen account will be created, with your own parent login. You will then be able to order meals of choice for your child, and look up the recipes to check what is put into the meal. Alternatively pupils will be able to use the school IPads to order the dinner they would like that day.
The cost of the meal will be £2.30 (£11.50 a week). Children in F2 and KS1 will continue to still receive a free universal school meal, as well as children entitled to free school meals.
Payment for meals can be made by logging into your live kitchen account here or by clicking image above. Accounts will not be able to fall into arrears or dinners will NOT be provided.
Payment must be made for a full week and not daily. If your account falls into arrears more than 5 days (£11.50), your account will be suspended and you will not be able to pre-order a lunch online or in school. You will receive an email from Dolce to notify you of this. However, if you have not notified school of your email address the account will be suspended in school and school will also be unable to order a lunch for your child. We will contact you to notify you of this and until the arrears have been cleared, you will need to provide your child with a packed lunch .
All payments will need to be either by direct debit or online. No cash will be accepted, and if arrangements have not been put in place you will be unable to order a school dinner for your child .
The school office will not handle any of the cash, or be able to give any change.
If you prefer you may send your child with a packed lunch.
We encourage the children to bring healthy lunches, including fruit and vegetables. A plastic bottle of drink or a carton of juice, may be included, but please do not send in fizzy pop! Chocolate and sweets are strongly discouraged as part of a packed lunch, and are not to be eaten at break times or during the school day.
We encourage children to get as much exercise and fresh air as possible at lunchtime, and we have a variety of activities and games on offer each day to engage children and to make this part of the day lots of fun! All of our lunchtime Supervisors are experienced play leaders.
