The Summer term is on us already and there are lots of exciting activities planned for all children in school. The weather is unpredictable so please send your child in for all eventualities. Thank you.

Woodlea Junior School

School Lunches Letter

Dear Parents,
School Dinners and Friday Favourites
Children at Woodlea are offered a hot daily dinner at lunch time, which needs to be booked and paid for in advance, at £2 a day. Children can choose to have just a meal on a Friday, as in a ‘Friday Favourite’. This needs ordering and paying for by the Friday before as this enables Mrs Leggett the time to order the food. Menus are available in the school entrance and on our website. We hope that this change makes it easier all round?!
There have recently been a number of children who have not brought in a packed lunch from home for a variety of reasons. Children will always be offered a jacket potato or a sandwich, made by the kitchen. This meal will need to be charged at £2 and parents will be notified that day.
Birthday Lunches
During the month when it is your child’s birthday, they will be invited to have a special lunch in school. For children who are on sandwiches, they have the opportunity to buy a lunch for £2 and sit on the birthday table.
We are very fortunate at Woodlea to have a ‘Food Council’, where the children have representatives from each class who meet regularly with Mrs Leggett and people from Lancashire Catering. Below are some of the upcoming lunch events that will be taking place during the next two terms. For these events, there will be separate information sent out, closer to the dates.
