School Lunch Information

Welcome to the School Lunch page

Plymouth City Council has developed an online Free School Meals form for parents and carers to apply for free school meals in Plymouth.

After a successful trial, it is being rolled out to all schools, start date 23rd April 2019.

The benefits of the online application are that the parent can apply in the comfort of their own home, at a time that suits them. 

If you are not sure if you would be eligible, it is an easy way for you to establish eligibility without the face to face conversation, which some people may prefer.

The online form is more secure than the paper forms, as everything is done online.

Parents / Carers can access the Free School Meals web page here:


We are proud to hold the Soil Associations Gold Catering Mark for our menus which recognises the fresh, local, seasonal and organic ingredients we use to cook 86% of our menu from scratch.

We use

  • Locally caught and landed pollock
  • Free range eggs (including in our mayonnaise)
  • Organic milk (EU subsidised)
  • Organic yoghurts
  • Organic herbs
  • MSC salmon
  • Fairtrade apple juice
  • Organic wholemeal flour
  • Seasonal fresh vegetables and fruit (which may vary due to availability)

We do many different lunch time promotions at Eggbuckland Vale Primary School, we want the children to enjoy lunch times socially with friends, whilst providing them with a good healthy enjoyable lunch.

We now make our own fresh natural yoghurt, we add vanilla, peach, strawberry or raspberry compot to this which the children really enjoy.


Our natural yoghurt is also used in our chicken curry and strawberry and lemon mousse.

Available daily are, organic milk and yoghurts, fresh fruit and fairtrade apple juice.

The Salad Bar is available daily for the children to help themselves, it contains a selection of fresh salad, fruit and wholemeal bread.
