At a time when the importance of working together has never been more relevant, the schools of Falmouth Multi-Academy Trust have teamed up to do their bit in supporting students.

Based at the Falmouth School site, staff from the primary schools of King Charles and St Francis, along with Falmouth School itself, have already been caring for the children of key workers and for vulnerable students.

On top of this, the school has become a hub for providing free school meals, with parents and carers of eligible students collecting packed lunches from reception on Monday afternoons with enough food to last the week.

Packs include such essentials as bread, cereal, pasta, rice and potatoes, as well as treats such as crisps and cakes.

The MAT was also delighted to have the favour repaid last week, thanks to the support of local businesses including Rodda’s, Costa, Picnic and Tesco helping keep staff going with cakes and bags in which to deliver the free school meals.

Mark Lees, interim CEO at Falmouth, said: "In this challenging and unprecedented time it is crucial that we do not forget about the children who need that extra support.

"I know that our staff are in regular contact with families to offer help and advice while our schools remain closed."
