Our school partially closed on Friday 20th March, due to the COVID19 Pandemic. We remained open for Keyworker and other groups identified by the Government.

Since then we have shared information with our school community.

On 23.03.20, Natalie our Catering Manager had already received the order and sent on two-week food parcels, for our Free School Meal pupils. At this time there was very limited food in the shops and definitely no toilet rolls!

We then gave out Magic Breakfast Club supplies for two weeks. This included large tins of beans, porridge, bagels and cereals. We managed to socially distance people and then by week three and the power of social media, our school site was inundated with people from the local community. As we were concerned our FSM food was no longer getting to our pupils and to prevent risk to staff we stopped visits to the school site and locked down as per Government guidance.

Since this time our FSM pupils received £15 a week food vouchers through Edenred. Getting food and the vouchers was one of our main priorities, especially at the start of the school closure and with such bleak supplies in local shops.

Our FSM pupil numbers rose from 117 to 127 pupils very quickly, as people’s circumstances changed.[/vc_column_text][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”11431,11432,11433″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]#Feed Cheltenham

We would like to thank #Feed Cheltenham for providing supermarket vouchers to some of our families. We asked for people to nominate themselves or others.
