At Wodensfield Primary School we use the catering services provided by Wolverhampton Local Authority for our school meals.
Meet the Team
Hot meals and vegetarian options are available at a cost of £2.40 per meal. We ask parents who wish to purchase a school meal (Year 3, 4, 5 and 6) to do so in advance by adding credit to the Sims Pay online payment system and informing the school office.

Free School Meal Eligibility
All children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 are entitled to a free meal on the Universal Infant Free School (UIFSM) scheme. Please click here for more information.
To apply for benefits-related Free School Meals (FSM), please speak to the school office.
You will need to provide the school with:
• your full name
• date of birth
• and National Insurance (NI) number or National Asylum Support Service (NASS) reference number
We will then share your details with the City of Wolverhampton Council. They check eligibility using a secure Government website.
If you are found eligible, we will let you know.
If you have No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF), you will need to complete an application form and provide additional evidence to the school.
Schools receive valuable Government funding (Pupil Premium) for every child registered for FSM. Even if your child chooses not to eat school meals, we would still encourage you to register.
Registering for FSM also entitles children to access the Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme during Christmas, Easter and Summer school holidays

Child's Own Sandwich Lunch
The meal must consist of a savoury main e.g. sandwich, roll, samosi, pasta salad
It must be sent in a plastic sandwich box.
The box must be clearly marked with your child's name.
In the interests of hygiene, sandwich boxes should be washed at home each day.
Children requiring water should bring a plastic water bottle. In the case of children bringing squash, this must be in a rigid plastic leak-proof container, and stored inside the sandwich box. Hot soup and 'fizzy' drinks should NOT be sent into school.
Children may take a mixture of packed lunches and school dinners during the week.
We would ask that you book the days via the school office in advance.
At lunchtime the children are looked after by our team of "dinner ladies". They supervise the children eating cooked lunches, the children having sandwiches and the children playing on the playgrounds. Our ratio of Ancillary Supervision for children staying on the premises is 1-15 Early Years and 1-30 in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
To request a copy of the school dinner menu, which is on a three week rotation, please contact the school office.
