Due to large increases in food, transport and staff costs, the price of a school meal is going up by 10p from June 3rd.
We recognise that parents are also being affected by the increased cost of living and we endeavour to keep school meals as affordable as possible. We are confident that school meals continue to offer excellent value for money.
Our school meals are healthier and better quality than ever before, freshly cooked with as many local ingredients as possible, and pupils are telling us the taste has improved too.
That shows in their increased popularity, with a 7.4% increase in the number of pupils choosing hot school meals in the last year.
