School Meals

A delicious selection of healthy meals are supplied daily to School by Ideal School Meals. Please click here to find out more about our catering provider.

Ideal School Meals menus comply with The School Food Plan, using the freshest British produce available.

There is a choice of two main meals, vegetarian, jacket potato or sandwich options. A selection of desserts, fruit and yogurts are available each day.

Lunches for FS and KS1 children (Reception, Years 1 and 2) are free of charge under the Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM) scheme.

Children in KS2 (Years 3,4,5 and 6) may also benefit from a school meal but these are chargeable at £2.30 per day. Some children in KS2 may still be entitled to a free school meal under the Free School Meal (FSM) scheme. Please see information about this on the links below.

Meals must be ordered online at by 9am Tuesday the week before.

If your child does not wish to have a School Meal they may bring a packed lunch. We have a Healthy Schools ethos at St Augustine’s and sweets, chocolates and fizzy drinks are not permitted.

Please note that no shellfish, salmon or whole nut products are to be brought into school.

We very much value your feedback and should you have any questions regarding School Meals and the process involved, please do not hesitate to contact the School Office on 01780 762094.

Our School Milk scheme

Did you know our school has a school milk scheme?
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.

“How much does it cost?”

Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.

“Why should I register my child?”

School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.

“How do I register my child?”

If your child is under five-

  1. Go to or pick up a form from school.
  2. Just register by a Tuesday for your child’s free milk to start the following week.
  3. Free milk will continue until the Friday before your child’s fifth birthday. You will receive a payment request three weeks before this time- if you wish for your child to continue to receive school milk simply make a payment.

If your child is over five-

  1. Go to or pick up a form from school.
  2. Pay Cool Milk online, over the phone, at a local PayPoint or by cheque in instalments to suit you.  If registering online you can pay straight away, if using a registration form you will need to wait to receive a payment request.
  3. Just pay by a Tuesday for your child’s milk to start the following week.
