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.
From September 2019 our catering provision will be managed by Chartwells.
Children in Reception, Years 1 & 2 receive meals free of charge under the Universal Infant Free School Meal Scheme. Pupils in full time Nursery and Year 3 will be able to pay for meals through ParentPay. Some pupils may be eligible for income based free school meals, if you believe you are eligible please contact the school office.
You can choose to bring provide a packed lunch for your child, or have a school meal.
Aureus Primary School Meal Facts:
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 of food in their lives – but also be passionate about good food and have the ability and understanding of how to eat well no matter what their budget is.
We strongly encourage all pupils to have a cooked meal, particularly in Key Stage 1, as research shows that packed lunches are not as nutritionally balanced as cooked lunches.
"Only one per cent of packed lunches meet the nutritional standards that currently apply to school food."
The Aureus Primary School menu will be available in September.
