school meal charges – september 2020

In setting the budget for 2020/21, St Helens Council made a commitment to increase charges in line with inflation.

This will result in increased charges for meals in order to ensure that budgeted levels of income are achieved.

The new charges, which are to be implemented from 1st September 2020, 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.
