Woodvale Primary Academy

School Dinners


The Woodvale Primary Academy receives its catering provision from Kingswood Catering.

The Academy has recently started using Kingswood Catering and lunches need to be ordered online via Kingswood’s website. The cost of a school meal is £2.30 per day or £11.50 per week. All meal orders must be placed by midnight on a Wednesday for the following week. Please do not bring any money into school.

It is important that you are ordering your child’s hot dinner for them (even if it is free). It is the parents responsibility to order hot dinners, not the school.

If you are having trouble with ordering your meals or have any questions please contact Kingswood Catering on 01536 201203 or email

Free School Meals

Schools in England provide free school meals to all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Whilst all pupils in these year groups will be provided with a free school meal, it is important that, if you think you are eligible to receive a free school meal, you continue to apply to the Northamptonshire Local Authority.

Existing entitlements to free school meals for disadvantaged pupils in nursery classes and at Key Stages 2-4 will continue as they do now, based on the existing free school meals eligibility criteria:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after parents stop qualifying for the Working Tax Credit

There will be no change to the process for applying for free school meals. Families receiving a qualifying benefit must continue to apply to Northamptonshire County Council.
