School Meals 

School dinners are freshly prepared and cooked on the premises by our caterers - Caterlink.

They provide a choice between two meals, two vegetable sides, a dessert or choice from a selection of fresh fruit. There is also unlimited access to our salad bar, organic crusty bread and fresh drinking water. 

If your child has a specific dietary need for a medical reason then Caterlink can still provide a meal for them. Please request a form from the school office. 

If you would like your child to have school dinners, please contact the school office.

Due to the Mayor of London's new initiative, from September 2023 all children are entitled to a free school meal.

If you think your child qualifies for benefit related free school meals, it is still important that you complete the application form for this, as your child may be eligible for extra funding for the school. Please contact the school office via info@buckingham.richmond.sch.uk for further information.

Packed Lunch 

Alternatively you may wish to send your child with a packed lunch, like school dinners this lunchbox should contain protein rich foods like chicken, low fat starchy foods like pasta, plus vegetables, fruit and dairy products.  Sweet drinks and sugary snacks should be kept to a minimum.  It is important to choose healthier options so that children are getting important nutrients.

Here are some quick ideas for easy lunches that your child may enjoy. 

Protein - Chicken, turkey, tuna, boiled eggs, lean ham, cheese and beans will all help to give your child energy and help them concentrate. 

Carbohydrates – Wholemeal bread, or ‘whole white’ which contains a third wholemeal flour.  Houmous with slice carrot or cucumber is also an option. 

Keep it varied – include baguettes, bagels, pitta as well as sliced bread.

Five-a day – Cherry tomato, grapes, slices of carrots and peppers all count towards your child’s five- a- day.  

Sweet treats – Fruit, dried fruit, small yoghurts and fruit smoothies give more long lasting energy than a chocolate bar. 

Fizzy drinks, energy drinks, sweets and chocolate are not allowed, however snack bars with biscuit and chocolate are.

Please send your child with a drink, for example, water, or milk to keep them hydrated and help maintain focus during the day.
