JFS, Europe's largest Jewish school, has agreed a "major change" in its eating arrangements by allowing children to bring packed lunches from the start of the new term in September.
Debby Lipkin, executive head, and Simon Appleman, acting head - who have taken charge following the resignation of headteacher Jonathan Miller last month - notified parents of the new policy last week.
The Ofsted squad which turned up at the JFS campus in Kenton, north-west London one morning in July 2014 took the school by surprise. Ranked as an outstanding school and enjoying an excellent academic reputation, JFS had not expected to be the subject of an unannounced inspection.
The 3a>resignation of Jonathan Miller as headteacher of JFS3b>, the country's largest Jewish school, has ended weeks of uncertainty after his unexplained absence since the start of term.
Mr Miller, who has led the London secondary school since 2008, wanted to "explore other professional opportunities", parents were told this week in a letter from the chairman of governors Steven Woolf.
Jonathan Miller has resigned as headteacher of JFS, it has been announced.
In an email to parents today, chair of governors Steven Woolf said: “I regret to inform you that the school has accepted Mr Miller’s resignation which will take effect at the end of the school year and his leave of absence will continue until that time.”
