Aspens Meal Cost Increase

21 June 2024 (by admin)

Information regarding a price increase to meal costs from 1st September.

From 1st of September 2024, the cost of a school meal will increase to £2.60.  The new price reflects a necessary adjustment to cover continued high food inflation and operating costs. We understand the financial concerns this may raise for some families and want to reassure you that this decision was made after careful consideration. 

Our school meal service remains committed to providing nutritious menus, catering for a wide range of dietary preferences while also ensuring good value for money.

As a reminder, if your child is in Reception, Year 1, or Year 2, they are entitled to Universal Free School Meals. If they don't currently take these up, why not give them a go? If your child is in Years 3-6 in Primary School or Years 7-13 in Secondary School and your circumstances have changed, you may be entitled to free school meals.
