The guidance states: 

‘Schools should provide free school meal support to pupils who are eligible for benefits related free school meals, including to those pupils who are not attending school. Extra funding will be provided to support schools to provide food parcels or meals to eligible children.’

As most of our FSM students are now working from home, the school’s catering services, BAM Catering, will be preparing food parcels for eligible students that can be collected on a weekly basis from the main reception area starting from next week.  In the event that a family is self-isolating, they can arrange for someone else to collect these parcels on their behalf.

Food parcels include: 

1 x 2 pints of milk
2 x jacket Potatoes
2 x tomatoes
1 x Cucumber
2 x Satsumas
2 x Apples
1 x Banana
1 x Loaf of Bread or 1x Pack of wraps
6 x cheese Slices
110g of Tuna or 125g of Ham
3  x Yoghurts
200g  of Sweet corn
6 Eggs
200g of baked beans

If students have a food intolerance/allergy to any of the above, please could you contact the Canteen Manager, Mrs Glover, on vglover@bam.com
