SCHOOL MEAL PROVISION 8 -26 MARCH 2021
Subject to Department of Finance approval, direct payments in lieu of free school meals will be made in respect of pupils in year groups that are not required to attend school and continue to learn remotely from home. Where pupils are required to attend school, school meals services will operate as normal
Direct payments in lieu of free school meals will not be made in respect of pupils in year groups that are required to attend school as these pupils will receive free school meals at school for the period they are required to attend. Those required to attend but who are unable to do so, on medical or PHA advice, for covid-19 related reasons (eg self-isolation) should be offered a food parcel as was the position from September – December 2020.
Free school meals should not be provided to key workers’ children and vulnerable children entitled to free school meals when at school for supervised learning as their parents will receive a direct payment.
Any pupil at school who wishes, including vulnerable children and children of key workers, may purchase a meal where school meals services are operating as normal for the period pupils are required to attend, otherwise they should bring a packed lunch.
Schools should however provide food on humanitarian grounds for any child who presents to school hungry as is normal practice. There are established procedures for this and schools have flexibility in how they do this.
Trust this will be helpful.

self-confidence to face the adult world.

SIMS PARENT APP
Effective parent engagement in schools is key to success and the SIMS Parent app is the ideal parental engagement solution. Building on the popular SIMS Learning Gateway, it provides a convenient and accessible way for schools to communicate with parents on all aspects of school life.
Parents with more than one child attending the same school can easily access grouped information on their children via the app. It's easy to use and accessible from a smart phone, tablet or PC. It uses SIMS ID, a secure single sign-on function so schools don’t need to manage logins.
