Falmouth School is to continue providing free school meals to pupils unable to go in due to partial closure. 

Yesterday the school announced it was having to close to year seven and eight pupils due to staff shortages over coronavirus. 

However, it has today confirmed it will be providing a packed lunch for students eligible for free school meals on Thursday and Friday.

These packed lunches will be available from reception from 12pm until 1pm, to be collected by the student, parent or carer.

The school said: "Please note due to the coronavirus advice that these packed lunches should be collected by individuals – please do not bring anyone else with you for collection, in line with government guidance.

"The school will continue to make every endeavour to continue this offer for students whilst the crisis continues and the school remains open, depending on staff availability and government advice and restrictions."
