A Message fro EATS are school meal provider


Dear Parents and Carers,


We are looking forward to welcoming you back in September. We hope you are excited about the food we have on offer for your children. We wanted to reassure you that all our teams who work in schools are fully trained and they have had additional training as a result of COVID19 to make sure we keep your children safe. Our menu is a little different to our normal offer as we need to ensure the food can be transported around the school safely to reach the pupil ‘bubbles’ that have been put in place. However, we always comply with the government School Food Standards guidance and we also buy our ingredients from local suppliers to bring your children a fresh, nutritious and delicious offer.
