We are asking that any parents of children with allergies (causes life threatening reaction, ie epi- pen needed) and/or intolerances (that makes your child poorly or causes a non life threatening reaction) that they must fill out a special dietary requirement form (see below). Please ensure this is completed and handed back to the School Office to ensure we hold all the correct details for each child. Thank you.
