Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


With the reopening of schools to all year groups, the catering teams have also returned to operation and are providing meals across all Primary and High Schools contracted to Bury’s Catering Service provision.

Due to the COVID19 situation and the need to follow social distancing and self-isolation, where possible, several risk assessments in line with current government guidance have been put into place to ensure that all catering staff, pupils and schools staff are kept safe.

Within the current risk assessments, if an instance of COVID19 occurs within a house hold or within the school, children may need to isolate. If however they are entitled to Free School Meals (FSM), they will need a continued access to this provision.
