Bromstone Primary School

School Meal price increase

We are increasing the price of school meals from April 2024.  

Please be advised that from April 2024 there will be a price increase to school meals.  Our Catering Team have been working hard over recent months to absorb these costs through menu changes and negotiating with our suppliers.  We have tried to keep the prices as low as possible for as long as possible, however we cannot continue to absorb the rising cost of food, energy increases and the rise of staffing costs due to the national minimum wage increases.  At Bromstone, the cost of a school meal has been £2.30 for a number of years.  With effect from 15th April (after the Easter break) the price of a school meal will be £2.50 per child. 

All menus will continue to provide children a choice of nutritious meals, while complying with the Government’s nutritional guidelines, and catering for those with allergies.  We want to assure you that the decision to take this action was not taken lightly. We will always continue to do all that we can to provide you the best possible value for money.

The Government is continuing to support Universal Infant Free School meals and this means that all of the children, from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 can be provided with a school meal free of charge. If your child is in Years 3-6, they can also have a free school meal if you are in receipt of certain allowances. If you believe you may be eligible please contact the school office for help in completing the forms or complete the online form here.

Thanks you for your understanding.
