On the afternoon of the 10th September, the parents of a student in Year 10 and the parents of a student in Year 11 contacted the school to inform us that their child had tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the school contacted Public Health England and the Local Authority as per Government protocol to seek advice about the course of action that needed to be taken. The direction from Public Health England was as follows:
1. School will be closed to all Year 11 students for 14 days with immediate effect; Year 11 will return to school on Monday 28th September 2020.
2. School will be closed to all Year 10 students for 14 days with immediate effect; Year 10 will return to school on Friday 25th September 2020.
There is a wide range of food available at break time and lunchtime; hot meals are provided in the main dining area and quicker meals, including snacks, can be found in our deli.
At Judgemeadow we cater for all dietary needs and requirements; halal, meat and vegetarian options are provided. Meals are selected with pupil involvement and menus are reviewed regularly by the Health Co-ordinator and Cook Supervisor with input from Student Council representatives. Our catering team often produce menus in celebration of international events and festivals: for instance, on European Day of Languages, pupils were given the option to purchase French pastries. Oriental dishes were also served on Chinese New Year.
Pupils have access to fresh drinking water at drinking stations throughout the college.
Food prepared by the college catering team complies with the Government School Foods Standards which seek to ensure healthy, tasty and nutritious food and drink is provided for all.
The college operates a cashless catering system. All pupils are issued with an ID card which allows them to purchase food from our dining facilities. The cost of a school meal for pupils is £2.05.
Credit can be placed onto the card in the following ways:
If a child receives a free school meal the credit will be automatically placed onto the card by the College. Parents can choose to credit further monies if required. When your child visits the dining area and buys food, credit will be deducted from the card.
One in five students in England are entitled to a free school meal. On average a family with 2 children spends over £600 per school year on school meals so it’s well worth checking out your entitlement. For more information please view our free school meals page.
Even if you don’t want the free school meals we would still encourage you to apply. The more children in school who are entitled to free school meals, the more funding the school will get – this will benefit all Judgemeadow students.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are operating a slimmed down menu, changed every week: View current menu
