Birkbeck Primary School

Nut Free School

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 we are a nut free school. As a nut free school, any foodstuffs with nuts or nut products should not be brought into school as some of our pupils suffer from severe nut allergies.

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.
