Christmas Lunch – Wednesday 11th December 2019

At John Port Spencer Academy, Christmas lunch will be on the same day as Enrichment Day 2 (11th December) this year. Form tutors and staff can join the students at lunchtime to make this an enjoyable festive occasion. The format of the day has been changed to allow all students to sit down and participate in the Christmas lunch if they wish to.

The Christmas lunch is £2.50, please click here for the menu. We are asking parents to prepay for their child’s Christmas lunch via ParentMail so that our catering team can plan numbers. Please pay for your child’s lunch via the ‘Payments Shop’ (not via the dinner money top up) on ParentMail by Wednesday 4th December. Students can also pay cash at Student Services. If payment is not received by 4th December we will assume that your child does not wish to have a Christmas lunch.

If your child is entitled to free school meals or if they are Pupil Premium, they will automatically be allocated a Christmas lunch; unless you advise that they do not wish to have it by Wednesday 4th December.

C Hall (with Christmas music) will be made available to students who bring a packed lunch with them. A limited choice of food will also be available at break time in the Pasta Plaza for those who do not wish to have the Christmas lunch.

Students having the Christmas lunch will be provided with a ticket to hand into the catering team (to exchange for the lunch). This ticket will be put into a draw to win a Christmas Selection Box (there are 50 to be won). The draw will take place during the afternoon.

There is a vegetarian option for the Christmas lunch, and students with dietary needs will be catered for. There are no other food options for students during the lunchtime period on this day (but there will be food available at break time). If your child would like a vegetarian option or has specific dietary needs, please let us know by emailing
