Nuts in school

Dear Parents and Guardians,


I hope this update finds you well. I am writing to inform you of our policy regarding the consumption of nuts.


As you may know, allergies to nuts are quite common and can be severe, even life-threatening for some individuals. We have children in our school who have been diagnosed with nut allergies. Their safety and well-being are of utmost importance to us. Therefore, we kindly request that you refrain from sending any food items containing nuts to school with your child. This includes all types of nuts, such as peanuts, almonds, cashews, pine nuts, and others, as well as foods that may contain traces of nuts.


We understand that this may require some adjustments to your child’s lunch and snack choices. However, we believe that with your cooperation, we can create a safer and more inclusive environment for all our pupils.


We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.


Thank you for your continued support.

Best regards,

Mr J Beacham - Headteacher
