Free School Meals Food Parcels

School Meals Food Parcels

Further to the recent media coverage regarding the standard of food parcels being distributed to children qualifying for free school meals, I would like to take this opportunity to confirm that Burton Road Primary School is extremely unhappy with the contents of the parcels supplied, and find them to be completely unacceptable.

Therefore, we will be taking control of the situation, and will be ensuring that any future parcels, supplied to any of our families will be supplemented by the school.

In addition, we can also arrange for an extra emergency food parcel delivery from Barnsley Food Bank, for any families who find themselves to be struggling.  If you feel that this will be of help, please contact Mrs Lisa McNicholas who will liaise with the food bank on your behalf. 

Mrs McNicholas can be contacted, in confidence, via the following e-mail:
