If your child isn’t eligible for free school meals or universal free school meals (all pupils in FS2-Y2) then you will benefit from Hull City Council’s school meal subsidy. Unique to Hull, the Local Government funded meal subsidy means that your child’s school meal will cost just £1.50- a saving of up to 75p per day!

At Buckingham Primary Academy we believe that allowing pupils to eat with their friends is an important part of school life. The school dining hall can be the perfect environment for developing key social skills.

We actively encourage pupils to be kind and polite to both staff and their peers in order to achieve a consistently welcoming dining experience. 

We understand that some children prefer to go home for lunch or pack their favourite treats into a shiny lunch box but we believe school meals are a great option for both you and your child!

Mellors Catering Service are our chosen, award winning, provider. Together they work with Buckingham Primary Academy’s dedicated Catering Team to deliver a service that suits all tastes and dietary requirements. Mellors want to ensure that every pupil has the opportunity to access a school lunch and their Allergen Procedure offers parents and guardians the opportunity to work with the school to create individual care plans, featuring a bespoke menu, which their child and the catering team will refer to each day. Please contact the school office to discuss your child’s dietary requirements and to request a copy of Mellors Allergen Procedure.
