Message regarding the increase in the selling price of school meals


The price of a paid school meal will increase to £2.36 from Monday April 16th 2018.  The County Council reluctantly have to increase the selling price of a meal due to the increases in the national living wage paid to school catering staff and the inflationary costs of food, materials and transport during the last twelve months.

We will continue to provide fresh, home cooked nutritious school lunches sourced locally which qualify to the Food for Life Gold Standard and are disappointed that we have had to pass on the increase on this occasion.

ParentPay (PP) will be updating the online payment system for pupil meal charges during the Easter holidays to reflect this increase.

Importantly please note this message only applies to Schools participating in the GCC School meals contract as supplied by Caterlink
