School Lunch Menu and Meal Information
School Meal Charges from Monday 8 May 2023
As from Monday 8 May 2023 there will be a 15p increase in the cost of the school meal from £2.40 to £2.55 for paid meals. The last few years have seen significant increases in both meals ingredients and labour costs due to the rise in the living wage. The catering team focus on fresh and locally produced food to achieve the school food standards. The meal still represents excellent value for money for a nutritionally balanced two-course hot meal.
School meals should be paid for at the start of each week and money or cheques maybe given directly to the School Manager or sent via the Class Teacher. Cheques should be made payable to NCC re Mattersey Primary School.
Unfortunately, if school meals have not been paid for for one week, you will be asked to send a packed lunch in for your child until the outstanding monies have been paid.
If you would like to pay online, please speak to the School Office for details.
