Family Dining

Aureus Primary are passionate and proud to focus on Nurturing the Hearts and Minds of every member of our school community and we are excited to be able to fulfil our school vision through our food. Food and Nutrition is an essential part of developing the whole child, and research shows that healthy children learn better. We are committed to ensuring that every student has access to an excellent quality meal each school day. 

We are delighted to be able to give every child the opportunity to experience and enjoy a family dining style where students will sit together, share experiences and enjoy a relaxed and nourishing dining experience as an integral part of the school day.

Aureus Primary Food Facts:

  • Inclusive (Meat is Halal, Veg option available)
  • Nut-free
  • School Food Standards Compliant
  • Student Focused & Driven
  • Delicious & Nutritious
  • Integral to our School Experience, Ethos & Values


Our in-house catering provision will give every student a unique and unparalleled opportunity to enhance our food provision and education.

Student voice will be an integral part of the menu development process and food technology and growing will be integral to the offering. From the outset, students will have the power to adapt the menu, and students will participate in key opportunities to develop dishes, consider themes and impact upon the food provision and dining experience.

It is our ambition to ensure that every Aureus Primary student leaves our school with not only the practical skills to look after themselves, make great food choices and understand the importance for food in their live – but also being passionate about good food and having the ability and understanding of how to eat well no matter what their budget is.

Ensuring EVERY Aureus Primary Student gets a delicious, nutritious hot meal, EVERY day…

  • Each meal will have a meat and vegetarian option
  • Fresh salads and homemade wholemeal bread will be served as an accompaniment to the meal
  • All students will have the chance to enjoy a family style dining experience each day
  • Our produce will be locally sourced  and we will involve our students in menu designs
  • We run our own catering service and ensure the benefits of the service control and flexibility stay within our school and benefit our community


Pupils are not permitted to bring packed lunches to Aureus Primary School. Research shows that packed lunches are not as nutritionally balanced as cooked lunches. Unhealthy packed lunches fuel obesity.

The Daily Mail quoted this - "In 2013 a Government-backed report compiled by the founders of restaurant chain Leon encouraged more headteachers to consider banning packed lunches. The report noted the rising obesity rates with children and added: Many parents mistakenly imagine that a packed lunch is the healthiest option. In fact, it is far easier to get the necessary nutrients into a cooked meal – even one of mediocre quality."

"Only one per cent of packed lunches meet the nutritional standards that currently apply to school food."

We are excited to work alongside our whole school community to achieve amazing things with our food and we will have regular opportunities for you to get involved with this essential part of our school experience.

Please see our sample menu below. The Aureus Primary School menu will be available in September.
