Free school meals which start at the beginning of the new term could potentially save Doncaster parents £3.3 million on lunches.

With around 8,473 children in the area - aged between four and seven - now eligible for free school lunches, many parents who have previously spent up to £400 a year on meals will reap the financial savings.

Government standards for school meals mean parents can also be secure in the knowledge that their children will receive a healthy, nutritious lunch – something which studies have shown contributes to improved concentration and learning in the classroom.
