To remind schools that you have a responsibility to continue to provide a school meal or food parcel for those children that are entitled to free school meals who are isolating.
Schools should work with their suppliers to prepare meals or food parcels for pupils who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals and who are not in attendance because they:
• are self-isolating
• have had symptoms or a positive test result themselves
• are a close contact of someone who has coronavirus (COVID-19)
• are not attending as a result of local lockdown arrangements
