A school meal costs £2.25per day.
Since September 2014 school meals are free for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
Friday's meal will always have a fish option as the Bishops of England and Wales have recently asked all Catholics to observe Friday penance. The children are also always offered a vegetarian option.
