School Dinner Increase Sept' 22

Please find information below regarding the changes to dinners that will start in September 2022.


When we return to school in September, we will be welcoming new caterers.  Pabulum will be overseeing the provision of our school meals.  Due  to increases in utility and food costs we have had to review our charges to ensure that we can continue to provide the best menu for your child.

New dinner cost from September will be £2.30 per day = £11.50 per week. 

This is a very slight increase of 10pence per day.

Please make your payment in advance via your MCAS app.

Dinner accounts will be monitored so please ensure it is kept in credit.

Accounts that are in debt will receive an email to ask for the account to be credited, if a debt continues you will be asked to provide a packed lunch from home until the debt is cleared.
