Dear Colleagues,

We would like to outline the dates of key meetings/ webinars from Lincolnshire County Council and the Lincolnshire Learning Partnership for the forthcoming academic year.

The local authority and the Lincolnshire Learning Partnership with the support of our valued partners have been able to pull together a comprehensive virtual offer, which will support the sector over the coming year. Please find below a series of events outlines which describe the events and include the links for making your bookings.

Due to the current circumstances we are unable to outline how events will be delivered from January 2021 and we will send further communication regarding the events later in the term.

We look forward to seeing you at the events. In the meantime if you have any questions about these events please email EducationTeam@Lincolnshire.gov.uk

Yours sincerely

Martin Smith

Interim Assistant Director of Education, Lincolnshire County Council and Lincolnshire Learning Partnership Board Member

Attendees will also be able to provide feedback to the Partnership and the Council and to network with their peers.

Food in Education Briefing
The Food Education Team (FET) will share top line data on the impact of Covid-19 on free school meals including the percentage increase in applications and eligibility. What has been the impact on children’s diet during their absence from school? The importance of returning to hot meals, to ensure children have a wide variety of nutrients and don’t become fatigued by cold packed lunches.

As part of Lincolnshire’s Public Health strategy the FET will briefly touch on compliance of the School Food Standards and how they can support schools/caterers to improve their catering provision. More than ever, it is important that the food provided across the school day is tasty, nutritious and school food compliant. The FET are able to check compliance of school menus as well as drill down into recipes to recommend healthier alternatives with less sugar/fat/salt content. The FET will be joined by a public health colleague from Oral Health to summarise Lincolnshire’s Oral Heath challenges and how working together we can positively impact on the health outcomes as well as education, attendance and behaviour of Lincolnshire’s children.

The FET will share the range of support to enable schools to adopt a whole school approach to a healthy food and drink environment.

In order to provide a choice of times, we have arranged repetitions of the events below, delegates will only need to attend one of the meetings in each monthly round of meetings. Further information of how to book on to this event will be communicated via School News.
