Allergies and Food at School

Dear Parents/ Carers,

We have some children at school with very serious allergies, particularly to nuts, but also to other foods like dairy and eggs. We are really careful about what is eaten at school because for some of the children, eating the wrong thing could result in anaphylaxis.


To help us keep children with allergies safe, please don't send in sweets, cakes or chocolates to be given out for birthdays or celebrations. Children get very upset when we tell them they can't give their birthday treats out, but we really can't take the risk.


Thank you.

Best wishes,

Mrs Seymour
