Have we missed something? You should be able to find what you’re looking for below.

  • Yes, you will! Under TUPE regulations, your current kitchen staff will transfer across when Dolce becomes your school’s new catering provider.

  • Since almost all local authorities recognise a school’s kitchen as part of a school’s estate, it remains with the school. Be sure to get in touch with us if you have any issues around this.

  • Check out our free downloadable document here.

  • We recommend a one-year contract with a terms cancellation thereafter.

  • Generally, six weeks is considered best practice for TUPE, so we’d advise eight weeks to ensure a smooth transition.

  • No – unless you operate your own in-house service. Under employment law, it will be the responsibility of the incumbent employer and the new employer.
