New School Meal Prices

21 August 2023 (by Martin Coyne (m.coyne))

Good Morning


I am writing to inform you of a change to the school meal prices, which will come into, effect when we return in September.

Despite our best efforts to keep school meal prices at a consistent level over the last four years, we can longer absorb the increasing prices and demand this is placing on the school budget.

From Monday 4th September, the cost of a School Meal will be £2.65. The weekly cost for meals will be £13.25.

This price increase does not affect Free School Meal entitlement.

If your child is eligible to receive free school meals (if you are in receipt of a qualifying benefit), then your child’s meals will continue to be free. If you think, you could be eligible for free school meals then please check www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals

If you require any help with School Meals or Parentpay please don’t hesitate to contact me


Kind regard


Mr Coyne
