During the spring and summer terms we posted a daily reminder about the following day’s school lunch. This was posted to the Facebook page and was therefore also sent to Twitter and our SMS subscribers.
It was difficult to judge how useful parents found this service – a few told us that they relied on them and a few others said there were too many, but we had no idea how most parents felt. If it was useful to the majority of parents the time spent organising it was fine, but if the updates were being ignored (or becoming a nuisance!) we would shift our energies elsewhere.
From September we made the decision to stop posting the reminders so that, half a term on, we could see if anyone has missed them…
So, we have two questions:
1) Have you missed the daily school lunch updates and would you like their return?
2) Did the daily school lunch updates have any effect on whether you chose a school dinner for your child or not?
Please either leave a comment below, on our Facebook page, or by replying on Twitter.
Thank you for your feedback.
