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 Kitchen Team 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 in your child with a water bottle every day.
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
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.
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.
