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. 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 Autumn 1 Term (3 Sept – 22 October 2021) is now open, please submit your orders as early as possible.

How to Check What You’ve Ordered

1. Check the ParentMail app. Accounts > Dinners > Statements (used to say History – it’s at the bottom right). This takes you to the calendar month – tap on that and it will show you what you’ve requested for each individual day.

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.
Upcoming dates:

Foundation – Autumn 1 Term Date TBA
Years 1 & 2 – Autumn 1 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.) 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.
