Special Diets


Special diets are an extremely important part of our catering provision and the safety of your child is our number one priority. We regularly review our special diet procedure to ensure it is working effectively, giving you reassurance that your child with medically diagnosed allergies or intolerances can eat safely with us.

Medical correspondence confirming the allergy/intolerance is required to ensure safety of your child by providing complete transparency of their food allergies or intolerances between all parties involved. It also gives us an indication of tolerance levels and possible reactions to look out for.


Parents/ guardians are responsible for keeping the special diet information up to date with the school and no changes will be made to our provision without an updated medical letter  being received from the school to pass on to catering.


If your child requires a special diet for religious purposes then please inform our school office and they will update your child's records and inform the catering team.
