Dear Parents,
We are very disappointed to inform you that Dudley Local Authority have informed us today (23rd September) that they cannot continue the full school lunch service at Dudley Wood.
They will not be offering any hot meals to any of our children.
They will only offer a 'grab bag' style cold meal to children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 and to children in Key Stage 2 who are eligible for free school meals.
The 'grab bag' style lunch will consist of a sandwich, fruit, yoghurt and cake/dessert.
The grab bags can be ordered daily as normal procedure. 
There will be no food service to any children in Key Stage 2 who are not entitled to free school meals.
They have advised that this is temporary, but we do not have an end date. It will be reviewed weekly.
Attached is a letter from Dudley which explains their action.
As a school and trust we have tried today to get this decision overturned but have been unsuccessful. We appreciate the importance of the meal service for our children and inconvenience this will cause. This action has been taken without consultation with the school.
We will update this page and message you if we have any further information to share with you.
