A SCHOOL may have to give up its hot meals service if it cannot find a kitchen assistant to help out at lunch times.In the meantime, staff and parents at Shipham First School in Turnpike Road have had to bring in meals, cooked at Fairlands Middle School in Cheddar, and serve them.Around half the children enjoy the healthy hot dishes but without a cook it has been increasingly difficult for the school to supply lunches.The assistant's job is for two hours a day, which could be a jobshare, and the cook will collect, serve and clear up meals for around 30 children.Headteacher Antonia Gwynn said: "We would love to continue to offer hot meals, but without some help we will have to disappoint the children. I'm sure the right person is out there and we would love to meet them."For more details about the position call the school on 01934 843485.
