Across all Head Start sites, we have a growing number of students with severe nut allergies. Some of these allergies are very serious and rapid in their reaction. Please be mindful of this if you are preparing packed lunches or snacks for students, and, where possible, avoid including nut products (or, if necessary, place in a sealed container).
Whilst this is difficult to police, we ask for your help and cooperation to ensure minimum impact on students' welfare. Please discuss with your child the potential impact of what is bought by students from shops and cafes and brought into school.
If food is prepared on site, we do not use any nuts during preparation. We inform all staff & students of any person(s) who have an allergy to raise awareness and understanding.
