SCHOOL LUNCH PRICE INCREASE – £2.20 PER DAY

Dear Families,

As from 19th April 2017 the price of school meals will increase. The new amount will be £2.20 per day/per child.

If you pay for your child/ren’s school lunch please note the new prices as from 19th April which need to be paid into your Parentpay account BEFORE your child has a school lunch:

 

Per day – £2.20 per child

Per week – £11.00 per child

Summer term – £136.40 per child (Wednesday 19th April 2017 – Friday 21st July 2017)

We regretfully advise you that in September there will be a further price increase of 10p per meal. School meals will cost £2.30 per day. We will remind you of the changes again closer to the time.

The school currently subsidises the cost of school meals by 40p a meal, however, we are unable to continue to do so. As you can see the cost of meals will increase to £2.30 per meal from September but we have opted to stagger the 20p increase in an attempt to support families. The school will continue to subsidise the meals by 20p per meal for as long as is possible.

If you have any queries or you believe that you may be entitled for your child to receive Free School Meals then please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

Yours sincerely,

Antoinette Goldwater

Headteacher

Your child may have a hot or cold school lunch or, if they prefer, bring their own packed lunch. There is a choice of hot and cold food, with a daily salad and fruit bar. All our eggs are free range and locally sourced, our meat comes from a fresh meat supplier and we only use Halal. Food is cooked freshly on site by our team of qualified staff every day.
