School Meal Updates

At this moment, there will be no meals being provided for our universal infant school meals. This is in line with updated government guidance.


Any family in receipt of free school meals are entitled to a meal or voucher from the school. Please make contact with us if you feel this applies to you. The school will provide a voucher for the most vulnerable cases. The school will use a FSM checker to ensure you are eligible. You can apply for free school meals on the link below.



All critical keyworker children will be provided with a hot/cold option on the days they are in school. Please can these children all bring labelled water bottles where possible.

Critical Incident Plan

Coronavirus Update – Doncaster Schools Catering

Funding for free childcare offers to continue in the event of Coronavius closures

Today the Chancellor has confirmed the Government will continue to pay for free early years entitlement places even if settings are closed on the advice of Public Health England or children are not able to attend due to coronavirus. We expect local authorities to follow the Department’s position, and to continue early entitlements funding for all childminders, schools and nurseries. We will not be asking for funding back from local authorities.

 The Government’s advice remains that childcare settings should stay open unless advised otherwise by Public Health England, and today’s announcement should help settings to continue to do so. This will minimise both longer-term disruption to parents and any income losses that providers may otherwise experience.

The full statement can be found here:

Handwashing Advice 

The most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to wash their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.
