Please provide a healthy snack for morning break. We encourage a balanced diet.

Please note all snacks MUST BE NUT FREE. We have children in school with severe nut allergies.

Please do not send your child into school with any nut-based product for a snack or packed lunch – this includes products that may contain traces of nuts.  Potential allergens could include the following:

  • NUTELLA, and NUTELLA based products
  • other butters or spreads e.g. peanut butter. almond butter
  • cereal bars
  • some types of biscuits containing nuts
  • cakes containing nuts
  • some snack pots containing nuts

It is important that you check the labelling of food products before sending your child in to school with them – it is not always apparent that products contain nuts or traces of nuts.

We also ask that, if you child consumers any nut-based products before school, they wash their hands thoroughly and rinse their mouth before entering the school grounds.  We understand that these measures may seem extreme; however, we want to ensure the health and safety of all our pupils, and the pupil in question’s allergy is so severe that even the slightest of contact with nuts would cause a severe and potentially life-threatening reaction.

As a school, we do not serve meals that contain nut-based products.  We also ensure all food tables are disinfected before and after being used with antibacterial wipes and cleaning fluid.

If any pupil is found with a nut-based product, it will be confiscated and disposed of immediately.
