Hi I have been offered a job at a religious school. It is lovely and the students are friendly. There seems to be an ethos of respect and tolerance, which is why I find it odd in their policy to find that staff can only bring certain types of foods on to the grounds. I don't want to say what specific diet as that would identify the religion and school. I was curious is this acceptable to dictate staff diets? I am a little worried as 1) I have my own specific diet to battle my PCOS symptoms which is strictly adhered to, 2) I may not be religious but I do have my own morals and beliefs and 3) this seems contradictory to their ethos. I'm happy to hide away my lunch from students but this seems a step too far. I have included here the copy and pasted policy terms (with parts ommitted): Staff 2. Staff may only bring in their own food if it is to be consumed out of the premises. Are they going to pay for the meals I can't afford? And give me extra time to complete admin as this means I couldn't have a working lunch? 3. Teachers wishing to give food to their class should ensure that it is ****. Ok, fair enough. Giving students food is a different issue altogether. 4 Staff may not remove food from the Dining Hall unless it is on disposable plates/with disposable cutlery Again, ok. Understandably helps keep the school clean. 5 No non- ***** food may be brought into the school by anyone, staff, or students. Same issue as above. If i'm not free to eat what is right for me and my needs, who is going to pay for and substitute this? I'm genuinely unsure how to feel about this and thought seeking other opinions would help me clear my thoughts. As I said, it is a lovely school, but eating is a fundamental part of the day.
