school meal charges – september 2021

St Helens Borough Council has a commitment to review fees and charges on an annual basis to ensure services remain sustainable. This has been undertaken for 2021/22 and it will result in increased charges for meals.

The new charges, which are to be implemented from the start
of the Autumn term, will be set to achieve an overall increase in income of 2.5%, though individual cafeteria items will be subject to different levels of increase depending on how demand for those items is likely to be affected.
