We have a number of pupils with nut allergies, some quite severe.
As a result we have declared that the Clyde Valley campus is a nut free zone.
Please be vigilant about packed lunches, sweets etc and ensure that no nuts come on to the school campus


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
  • Biscuits conmtaining nuts
  • condiments, e.g. satay sauce
  • Cakes containing nuts
  • 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, and one of the pupils allergy is so severe that even the slightest of contact with nuts would cause a severe and potentially life-threatening reaction.

    Further to these provisions, the school will not be serving dinners that contain nut-based products – this includes products that are labelled as ‘may contain traces of nuts’. We will also ensure all food tables are disinfected before and after being used with antibacterial wipes and cleaning fluid.
