School Lunch Price Increase

School-lunchThe cost of a school lunch will increase from Monday 13th April 2015.

They will go up 15p per day, from £2.25 to £2.40.

We have tried to keep our prices low, whilst ensuring that we provide the highest quality food that we can. We have managed to keep prices the same for the last 5 years, despite food costs having risen considerably.

We hope you agree that this increase is reasonable and we will continue to provide the best service we can.
