Children are able to help themselves to our salad bar daily.
Our cater at Gatehouse is Devon Norse, their food ethos has always been based on high quality ingredients prepared by well-trained catering teams.
As caterers based in the South West, they are blessed to have such a fantastic selection of local produce and suppliers.
Local produce, organic food and healthy eating are fundamental to them. This has helped them achieve Silver Food for Life status across all our schools.
Their meat and poultry is British, which is sourced from farms across Devon and Cornwall to high welfare standards.
They only use free range eggs and have held a Compassion in World Farming Good Egg Award since 2016.
All milk comes fresh from farms across Devon and they work closely with Total Produce to ensure they are always using the best local and seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables.
Their delicious ice cream is made by Langage Farm with milk from their Jersey cows just outside of Ivybridge, on the edge of Dartmoor.
Wykes Cheddar produces our cheese at its Somerset farm and over 50% of the fresh fruit and vegetables are grown on farms in Devon and Cornwall.
All our fish are also responsibly sourced and approved by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
As a Gold Food for Life caterer, they are committed to using local seasonal produce at every opportunity. Devon Norse take pride in serving children with nutritious, freshly prepared meals which they enjoy, helping them to develop a healthy relationship with food.
They support a number of Fairtrade suppliers.
