  Kids get chips delivered to school
Updated 19 September 2003, 11.57
Chips are going to be delivered to a school
Peckish kids at a school in Yorkshire don't have to go out to the chip shop at lunchtime, because the chip shop comes to them.

Pindar School in Scarborough, Yorkshire, did a deal with a local chip shop to deliver food ordered by the children, but only once a week.

Starting on 29 September, years nine, 10 and 11 will be able to give their orders and money to school who will then ring them through to the chip shop.

The head at the Pindar School Mr Bellamy told Newsround's website he's trying to make sure the school is healthy, and said: "fish and chips once a week are acceptable".

Mr Bellamy explained to Newsround's website that a while ago all the children were allowed out of school at lunchtime.

But when Mr Bellamy took over he found that this was making the school unpopular with older people who can feel scared of big groups of children.

Rule change cost shops cash

Now kids have to stay in school during lunchbreak, but the shops where they were spending their cash were losing loads of money.

So the school came up with a scheme to help local businesses including the chip shop and also the local post office.

They've been allowed to open up a kiosk in the school where the children can buy sweets and stationery.
