School Meals After Half Term
Dear Parents/ Carers,
I am writing today to share some information about school meals. As we are all acutely aware, the cost of living has increased sharply - in particular the prices of food. At this time of year, we are in the process of setting the new budget for the next financial year and, as with many schools at the moment, our finances are stretched extremely thinly.
Our catering providers, Mellors, are also experiencing the effects of inflation and they, in turn, have passed on increased costs to us. As a school, we are simply unable to absorb these increased costs and this means that, regrettably, we have no other option than to increase the price of our school meals after half term. The new price of school meals (for children who do not receive Universal Infant Free School Meals or Benefits-related Free School Meals) will be £2.95
