Nut Free School

Dear Parents

Please can we remind you that we are a nut free school. Allergic reaction can occur as a result of digestion, inhalation or any other contact with nut-based products. For the safety of children who have a nut allergy, all nut-based products have been banned from the school premises.

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:

  • Spreads, e.g. chocolate spread
  • Cereal bars
  • Some types of biscuit containing nuts
  • Condiments, e.g. satay sauce
  • 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 your child consumes any nut-based product 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.

The school no longer serve dinners that contain nut-based products – this includes products that are labelled as ‘may contain traces of nuts’. We also ensure all food tables are disinfected before and after being used.

We appreciate that this is an additional thing to check and we know that you recognise the importance of it.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this matter.


Kind regards,

Co-Head of Schools
