Dear children, parents and carers,

The food parcels for those families who have requested them are now available to pick up from school. You are welcome to come along to the front entrance between 10am and 2pm today or tomorrow. The bags are quite heavy and there are two per child to carry, so please make sure that you come prepared !

Anyone whose child is entitled to free school meals (having applied for them and been accepted) can receive these food parcels fortnightly. These are being given out instead of the food vouchers and are well stocked by Gateshead Council. They are nothing like the ones seen on the internet earlier this month that people were complaining about. If you have not had food parcels yet but would like to be included, please get in touch with us so that we can arrange it if the lockdown lasts after half term. As yet, we do not have any information about this, but will let you know as soon as we do.

Many thanks,

The Bede team
