Woodlands School

School Meal Service

Our school dinners are cooked on the premises by Blackpool Schools’ Catering Service. We provide a choice of meals and always take into consideration any students' dietary requirements.

Students and parents are able to select their school meal through Cypad and pay for them through Parent Pay.  For more information and to access these websites Click here

Free School Meals

If you receive any of the following, you qualify for Free School Meals.  By registering you will help us to ensure additional income:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based JSA or ESA
  • Child Tax Credit only (income below the threshold amount)
  • Guarantee element of Pension Credit
  • Asylum seeker support

Please be assured that registering for FSM is confidential. Please speak to the office staff for more information, in confidence.

If your child is Universal Free School Meals or Free School Meals you will still need to follow through the payment screen on Parent Pay, however no payment will be taken from your account.

Packed Lunches

You may prefer for your child to bring a packed lunch. We teach and encourage children to eat healthily and this is followed up in the dinner hall.

We ask that parents and carers support the school by providing healthy packed lunches. We ask that you don’t send in sweets, chocolate, fizzy drinks, glass bottles or cans. 

We are also asking parents whose children usually bring their own packed lunch to sign up for Cypad, for those odd occasions that packed lunches are forgotten or you want them to have an ad hoc dinner.
