Nut and Food Allergies


We have children in our school and nursery who have severe nut and food allergies. Any contact at all with nuts or certain pulses could cause a life threatening allergic reaction, that requires emergency medical treatment. We must provide them with a safe environment at all times.The school must be a nut free environment. This includes:

  • All nuts
  • Pulses such as lentils (baked beans are fine)
  • Chick peas – including hummus
  • Sesame seeds

This means that all food and other products brought into and used in the school or nursery must not contain nuts. In order to avoid any risk to our children, all children and adults entering the building must carefully note the following:

Any product containing nuts must not be brought into the school or nursery building i.e. ‘NUTS’ is listed in the ingredients on the package.

Children should not bring a snack, which contains nuts.

Children who have packed lunches cannot have nut products in their lunch boxes. This includes chocolate spread (such as Nutella), peanut butter or pesto.

If you have eaten nut products at home e.g. peanut butter, crunchy nut cornflakes, Nutella – you must thoroughly wash your hands and face to remove any trace of nuts before entering the school.

Thank you for your cooperation.
