A Note on Ordering

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 here. 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).

PLEASE NOTE: At the end of July there was a problem with the lunches listed on ParentMail, due to a communication mix-up with the food company Chartwells. The first week back is a WEEK 3 menu, not a Week 1 menu. The problem only became apparent after we had broken up for the summer! Therefore we had to move the scheduled meals forward by a week. So, the meals your child is receiving will be something you ordered, just not on the dates advertised. We apologise for this confusion. The information in the documents linked above is correct as of September 2020, so you can check what your child will actually be served each day. The information on ParentMail will be correct as of Autumn 2 term.

How to Check What You’ve Ordered

1. Check the ParentMail app. Accounts > Dinners > History (small clock symbol at 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.
