School Meals



Dolce Schools Catering are Applecroft School’s chosen school meal provider.


Dolce is a family run schools catering provider with a passion for delivering good healthy food with the best customer care.  Dolce offer exciting new menus each term which are cooked fresh from raw ingredients.  Each menu operates on a three week cycle and has four main and four pudding options each day, as well as a selection of healthy side dishes, breads and a well-stocked salad bar.


Dolce work alongside SchoolGrid, an award winning online pre-ordering and payment system.


SchoolGrid not only offers you the option to pre-order meals it also provides recipes, ingredients, nutritional breakdown, allergen information and preparation details for all the meals offered.


The management of a child’s allergens and dietary requirements through SchoolGrid is a fantastic protection system unique to Dolce.  Once logged in, a parent or carer is able to inform the system of a child’s dietary/allergen information. SchoolGrid will pro-actively block meal choices containing identified allergens/dietary requirements and only display meal options suitable for the child. For children with a gluten allergy Dolce will generally create an alternative dish using gluten free products.


SchoolGrid allows you to pay for school meals flexibly by direct debit or credit/debit card (either online or by telephone) – there will be no additional charges for making payments to your account whichever method you use.
