Allergen Information

Dietary Needs


Food allergies, intolerances and other dietary-related medical conditions are a growing concern for schools. Children who are affected can suffer a severe or even fatal reaction if they eat or come into contact with food they’re allergic to.

If your child has a food allergy, intolerance, or dietary related medical condition the academy needs to be informed. This is so that we are able to share the information with our catering partner Sodexo Ltd, this is to ensure that they can make alternative meals that are safe for them.

If your child’s condition changes, you need to tell the academy as soon as possible. The academy needs to know: -

  • Food allergies (for example to cow’s milk)
  • Food intolerances (for example to gluten)
  • Other dietary-related medical conditions (for example coeliac disease)
