Ordering School Lunches
We prefer all lunches to be ordered using ParentMail. You can order them by viewing Accounts > Dinners.
If you need to order using a paper form, you can download a form above or enquire at the office. However we are trying to reduce the amount of paper coming in and out of the school office as a safety precaution against Covid-19. ParentMail also makes it much easier for Pre-School parents to organise payment (£2.40 per meal).
Meal ordering for the Spring 1 Term (5 January – 17 February 2022) is now open, please submit your orders as early as possible.
How to Check What You’ve Ordered
1. Check the ParentMail app. At the top left of the screen there are three little lines. Tap these and a menu pops up. Select Accounts. Select Dinners. At the bottom right of the screen, it says Statements (very small!) This takes you to the calendar month – tap on that and you can go into each individual day to see what you’ve requested.
2. Ask at the office. We can check and tell you what you’ve ordered.
School Lunches and Pupil Premium
All school-aged children at Wood End are eligible for universal free school meals. However your child may also be eligible for Pupil Premium. This is an important type of extra educational funding for the school. If your child is eligible for Pupil Premium, this will also qualify them for free school meals when they grow older and move into Year 3. Please see the document below headed ‘Pupil Premium’ for more information and to find out how to apply, or how we can apply for you.
Forest School Whole Day Sessions
Once a half term, Foundation and KS1 will have a whole day session of Forest School, including lunch.
Foundation – Spring Term Date TBA
Years 1+2 – Spring Term Date TBA
Lunch will be a jacket potato with a choice of toppings. (This differs from the meal options previously advertised on ParentMail for that day. If you order anything other than a jacket that day, your child will still get a jacket.) The lunches will be provided by our new supplier Essence Catering. There will also be some other treats cooked over the campfire throughout the day! If you have any concerns regarding this, please speak to your child’s teacher.
