Some clarification on nuts in packed lunches and around school.
Some of our children in school are particularly allergic to nuts.
This year we have had more children join us, and felt that to safeguard all of our children we should re-iterate what our rules are for lunchboxes and food in school generally.
Packed lunches must not include peanuts or peanut butter, as we have children in school with severe nut allergies. We would ask parents to avoid other nut products in school if possible. Packed lunches should include a balanced range of foodstuffs, and not be overly biased towards chocolate, sweets, crisps or salty snacks.
Our Whole School Policy on food is linked here.
Many thanks for supporting all of the children in our school family.
