At Woodside School we have a hot meal service for all children who wish to take them provided by Chartwells Ltd. The meals are charged at £2.40 per day.Your child can have hot meals every day or as and when they choose to do so. Pupils may bring a pack lunch if they prefer.
We feel passionate about the benefits of a healthy hot meal at lunchtime for pupils. Research shows that better food in schools is improving what children eat during the school day, and there’s evidence of a clear link between what children eat at lunchtime in school, where they eat it and how they focus with their teachers in the afternoon. 
Hot meals can be ordered via a ParentPay account a week in advance. Please click HERE to be directed to ParentPay
Please contact Chartwells parents support line 01908 615705 should you require any help with setting up an account and or ordering meals in the first instance or contact the school office for further information.
Your child may qualify for free school meals. If you believe this to be the case please see below a form that can be filled in to ascertain this and hand it in to the school office. All information is handled in the strictest of confidence and it is not obvious to your child, or anyone else, that the meals they receive are free.  In qualifying for free school meals your child would also qualify for pupil premium funding which is money that can be used by the school to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.
