School Meals Provision

Gledhow meals are cooked from fresh in our school kitchens by Jane Glossop and her LCC catering team.. Our termly menus provide a high quality nutritionally balanced choice of meals for the children.

Each day there are four menu options: GREEN - Vegetarian Meal, RED - Meat Meal, YELLOW - Sandwich Meal, PURPLE - Potato Meal

The children order their meal at registration each day so that meals can then be prepared to order. A salad bar and selection of desserts are available every day.

School Meals and Packed Lunches

Some parents may wish their child to enjoy a packed lunch provided from home, rather than a school meal. Information to that effect should be communicated to the School Office. Requests to change school meals to packed lunches or vice-versa can only happen at the end of each half-term. Requests for such changes should be made in writing to the School Office and written notification will be sent to parents once the change has been made.

The Gledhow Kitchen Team

Jane Glossop leads an award winning kitchen. Not only have they the highest award for hygiene but were also the runners-up across all the LCC school kitchens for their innovations and quality of food.

School Meals Information

Do you know… since September 2014, school meals for ALL children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have been completely FREE! This provides a saving to families of approximately £430 per year for each child.

Children are able to concentrate and learn better when they have eaten a healthy, balanced lunch – school meals can be the simple solution. In our school we serve 4 meal choices each day, consisting of: two main courses (one of which is a vegetarian meal) a jacket potato option and a sandwich option. Each meal includes a main course, vegetables and salad, pudding of the day or fruit or yoghurt and chilled water.
-          Meals are freshly made every day
-          Using great quality produce:
o   Fresh vegetables and potatoes, locally when in season
o   UK farm assured chicken, beef and lamb 
o   Free range eggs from East Yorkshire
o   100% salmon and white fish fillet from sustainable sources
o   Dolphin friendly tuna
o   Choice UK cheddar
-          Menus are designed to provide healthy, balanced meals which will be enjoyed by children
-          Menus meet the Government guidelines for school meals
-          All medical diets can be catered for
