At Woodmansterne we are very fortunate to have our lunchtime meals cooked fresh in house every day. The team at Woodmansterne are passionate about cooking fresh, nutritious and exciting meals, using high quality fresh ingredients. There is always a meat/fish and vegetarian option for the children to choose from. The menus will be available by Friday, 6 September 2019.
Payment is to be made through ParentPay.
The daily cost for school lunch is £2.35 for all pupils. For secondary pupils, morning snack is £1 (these payments are separate, so that if only lunch is taken, only £2.35 will be taken off the ParentPay account). Pupils's accounts must have money in them for them to have a school meal or morning snack (unless they have been recorded as having free school meals). Secondary have a choice of a hot or cold lunch, with either a dessert or fruit.
The weekly cost will be £11.75 plus £1 per each secondary snack taken.
For pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 school meals are free.
Payment should be made weekly in advance every Monday, or on the first day of term if paying for the whole term.

There are water fountains around both buildings (as well as water machines in secondary) water jugs are available at lunch time. We recommend that water bottles are bought to school and topped up at the fountains and machines.
Free School Meals
All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are currently eligible for the government Universal Free School Meals. If your child is in Years 3 to 9 but you are receiving benefits and think you may be eligible for Free School Meals, please fill out the Free School Meal Application Form and return it to the school office and we will let you know if you are eligible. Children in Nursery are not eligible for Free School Meals. For more information on Free School Meals please click here
Please make the school aware if your child has special dietary needs or suffers from any food allergies by filling in the Special Diet Referral form. If there is no medical or religious reason why your child should not eat a certain food, we always encourage them to try everything as having a school meal every day is important for their social skills and to introduce them to new foods and healthy eating.
If, however, you would prefer your child to have a packed lunch please make sure that it is balanced and nutritious. We do not allow crisps, chocolate bars, fizzy drinks or glass bottles.
