Church of England Primary School

Small school, big hearts. Wise, Responsible and Kind like the Good Samaritan.

All meals are freshly prepared and cooked on a daily basis.    Each meal comprises a hot dish, followed by a dessert with the option of fruit, cheese and crackers or yoghurt.


A menu is available on this page on a termly basis outlining seasonal changes to the food on offer.  Children may choose to have school dinners on a daily basis at registration time. 


The cost is £2.00 per day for nursery children and £2.40 per day for the rest of the school, which is payable through ParentPay.  Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive the Universal Infant Free School Meal scheme where the government fund the cost of a school meal.  Children are also welcome to bring their own packed lunches to eat at school; we find that over 80% of children opt for hot school meals on a daily basis. 


Buckland School is very committed to being a “healthy eating” environment and therefore requests that children do not bring sweets to school.


Reception and Key Stage 1 children receive a free piece of fruit for their daily snack through the Government '5 A Day' scheme.


We request that other snacks brought in to school must be of a healthy nature (no crisps or chocolate biscuits) and, due to allergies, no nuts or nut based products are brought into school.


As a ‘Healthy School’ we do have a food policy which emphasises our commitment to give our pupils consistent messages about all aspects of food and health.  This is available from the office.




Children under the age of 5 year's old are entitled to free milk, for those over this age parents can pay a small fee for milk and can register via or speak to Mrs Siedle in the office.
