Nut Allergies (Nut Free School)

At Holbeach, we aim to be a Nut-Free school. This means that we would like the whole school community to make every effort to protect any children who have allergies to nuts.

To this end:
• We do not allow nuts or nut products in anyone’s packed lunch boxes.
• We ask every family to carefully consider what snacks they provide for their children.
• We work with our catering provider to ensure that their recipes do not include nuts.
• We work with the individual children affected to help them be responsible for the food they ingest.

We no longer accept cash for dinner money and certain school clubs (check with school office).
