Change to School Meals 

REMINDER to all parents in Year 3,4,5 and 6. School meals have increased from 50p per day to a £1 from Monday 7th/Tuesday 8th January 2019.

We encourage every parent or carer who is anxious about the increase in meal prices to approach their school for help in applying for free school meals or to apply online before the 11th of January using the following link:…/…/free-school-meals
