Wood Street School

New catering providers Edwards & Ward

Dear Parents / Carers,

I am delighted to inform you that after a rigorous tendering process for our catering service across the federation of schools, we have awarded Edwards & Ward our contract Please see their newsletter attached to find out more about the company.

I am delighted to inform you that at Wood Street Infant School, our lead cook manager on site will continue to be Jodi Boshoff and who is excited for coming on board with Edwards and Ward, and whilst we appoint our new lead cook manager, Susan Williams and Jakki Haysom will be leading the kitchen team at Worplesdon Primary School. 

From Wednesday 3rd January, children will benefit from a delicious new menu (attached), full access to a fresh salad bar every day, two serving hatches at Worplesdon (to reduce queueing time), plates rather than the current flight trays and a family style dining experience (with table cloths and bread baskets of every table). As we move through the Spring term, we will also benefit from special taster sessions for the children ahead of new menus being released, and investment in both kitchens.

During our selection process, we were impressed with Edwards & Ward’s special diet process and their quest to make it as simple and inclusive as possible, ensuring that all children can be fed safely and effectively. If your child requires a special diet as a result of a diagnosed allergy, intolerance or medical condition, you must register with Edwards & Ward using the following link

Finally, the cost of individual meals will remain the same with a meal costing £2.70. The way you pay for your child’s meals will also remain the same through our ParentMail system Login - IRIS ParentMail. Children will continue to choose their meal through Studybugs in class.

We are looking forward to Edwards and Ward bringing to life the vision we have for our schools in providing great nutritious meals to our children.

Best wishes,

Kareen O'Brien
