Here at Gladstone, the team in our kitchen, Mrs Davies - Cook, and her Assistant Cook work hard to provide healthy, balanced & appetising meals for our children.
Halal food is not served at Gladstone however, we do offer a daily vegetarian option for our Muslim pupils.
Some specialist diets can also be catered for eg. dairy free but must be arranged in advance with School Catering via your child's dietician. Unfortunately, our kitchen is not able to cater for nut free diets.
Menus are available on the link below.
Meals are ordered and paid for one week in advance on a Wednesday morning. Parents are able to opt for meals for the whole week or individual days. Please send your payment in on a Wednesday morning with your child in an envelope clearly marked with their name and class. Please send correct change, any overpayment will be carried forward to the following week. Please help us to avoid waste & let us know on the Wednesday before, in writing, if your child is switching to a packed lunch the following week. This will avoid meals being ordered & cooked which will then have to be paid for.
