Children may bring a packed lunch, including a drink. As we encourage healthy eating, please try to include pieces of fruit and yoghurts. Sweets and chocolate bars are not permitted.
Although we recognise that this cannot be guaranteed, St Walburga’s aims to be a Nut-Free school.
To reduce the risk to those children and adults who may suffer an anaphylactic reaction if exposed to nuts or seeds to which they are sensitive. The school aims to protect children who have allergies to nuts yet also help them, as they grow up, to take responsibility as to what foods they can eat and to be aware of where they may be put at risk. We do not allow nuts or nut products in school lunch boxes.
The following items should not be brought into school:
- Packs of nuts
- Peanut butter sandwiches
- Nutella or chocolate spread
- Fruit and cereal bars that contain nuts or sesame
- Chocolate bars or sweets that contain nuts
- Sesame seed rolls (children allergic to nuts may also have a severe reaction to sesame)
- Cakes made with nuts
We have a policy to not use nuts in any of our food prepared on site at our school. Our suppliers provide us with nut-free products. However, we cannot guarantee freedom from nut traces.
