School Meals Provision

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

Each day a choice of grab-a-bag lunches is available.  

The children order their meal at registration each day so that meals can then be prepared to order.

School Meals and Packed Lunches

Some parents may wish their child to enjoy a packed lunch provided from home, rather than a school meal. Requests to change school meals to packed lunches or vice-versa can only happen at the end of each half-term and should be made in writing to the School Office.  

Please send your child's packed lunch in a wipeable lunch box and remind your child that they should not share their lunch with other children - its just for them to enjoy.

Gledhow school politely requests that you do not include any items in your child's lunch that may contain nuts - including cereal bars, nut-based sandwich fillings and whole nuts. This is for the safety of the children in school who have a nut allergy.

Free School Meals

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 £460 per year for each child.

Each meal includes a main course, vegetables and salad, pudding of the day or fruit or yoghurt and chilled water.
