We have a number of children and adults in school who have a severe allergy to nuts. In order to reduce the risk to those children and adults who may suffer an anaphylactic reaction if exposed to nuts we aim to be a nut-free school. Although we recognise that this cannot be 100% guaranteed, we ask all children, parents and staff not to bring nuts or products containing nuts onto the school site on any occasion, including when donating food for Friends of Hillcross events e.g. Walnut Cake for coffee mornings.
When preparing your child’s packed lunch please ensure that you do not include any products containing nuts. This includes peanut butter, cereal bars with nuts and nut flavoured yoghurts. Please note that if your child likes chocolate spread in their sandwiches this should not be a Nutella product. If you are unsure please check the ingredients on the label.
