Our Special American Diner Day - 16th May 2024

Join us for our American Themed Diner Day on Thursday, 16th May.  All dietary requirements will be catered for as always.  We hope the children enjoy the special menu.

Introducing our New Menu  -  April 2024

 

We are delighted to share with you our new menu which launches at the beginning of the Summer Term.

  

We have put together a new set of weekly menus featuring many of the most popular dishes along with some seasonal variations to take advantage of fresh seasonal produce.  We hope the children at Woodfield will enjoy the new menus.

!!  We have a Five Star Food Hygiene Rating !!

 

The Environmental Health Team came at the end of term to undertake their Full Inspection.  We scored a maximum rating of 5 in the statutory compliance!!! 

 

We would like to thank our amazing kitchen team for all of their hard work in feeding everyone and doing such an amazing job smiley

 

 

 

Our Mouthwatering Meals!

In addition to our menu, available daily are:

 

  • Freshly Made Bread
  • Selection of Salads and Fresh Fruit
  • Assorted Yoghurts
  • Vegetarian Vegan options always available.

 

Special Diets also form an important part of the catering provision we offer, catering for those children with an intolerance to specific foods, for example:

  • Food Intolerance
  • Food Allergy
  • Food Aversion
  • Medical Conditions
  • Ethnic Minority Groups

 

If your child requires a special diet or you would like to discuss this menu in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact our Mrs Morrison our Head Cook who will be pleased to help.

 

Nut Allergies and Water in School

We have some children in our school who suffer from a severe reaction to nuts.  Please could you be extra vigilant about packed lunches or any snacks you send into school.  Please ensure no sandwich fillings have nuts or traces of nuts. If packed lunches include processed/ packaged items, please check the ingredients.  

 

We encourage children to drink water to ensure they remain hydrated during the school day.   Please send your child in with a water bottle every day. Please do not send anything other than water; the bottles are accessible to all children in class / school and we have a range of allergies, intolerances and medical needs that could be exacerbated by non water drinks.

 

We appreciate you help with this; it is for the safety of the whole school community.

Free School Meals

Whilst the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for Government Funded Universal Free School Means, if you think you may be entitled to Free School Meals, please take a look at the Shropshire Council website.  The application is quick and easy.  Parents and carers can make an application online here

 

School Fruit

All children are offered a piece of fruit or a vegetable each day through the free fruit for school scheme. This could be an apple, orange, carrot, pear, sugar snap peas, raisins, etc. Children eat their fruit in class either just before or just after playtime.

 

Milk

Woodfield School provides a milk scheme for all our pupils. If you would like your child to receive milk you will need to register your child with ‘Cool Milk’. Children who are under the age of 5 are entitled to free milk but you still need to register your child if you want them to receive milk in school. Once a child reaches the age of 5, milk can still be provided but this will be at a cost of 28p per day. Once registered, children will be provided with a small bottle of semi skimmed milk as part of their morning snack.

 

You can register your child at www.coolmilk.com

  • We recommend that you register online as soon as possible. Shortly after registering you will receive a payment request if your child is 5 years old or older.
  • You can pay Cool Milk either online, over the phone, at a local Pay Point or by cheque in half-termly, termly or annual instalments sent to Cool Milk. Please do not send any milk payment to school.
  • Please pay by Tuesday 5pm for your child’s milk to start the following week.

 

This scheme is operated by Cool Milk therefore if you have any questions regarding school milk please visit www.coolmilk.com or contact Cool Milk directly on 0844 854 2913. Please note that, by signing up for this scheme, you will be agreeing to share information about your child with Cool Milk. This will, in turn, be shared with the school and we will confirm that your child is registered here and what class they are in. By registering for the scheme, you are agreeing to us processing this data, in line with GDPR regulations.
