We try to provide meals to meet any special dietary requirements.
If your child has a food allergy or intolerance; medically prescribed diet; or diet for religious or cultural reasons, contact the school office in the first instance so that any necessary arrangements can be put in place.
You will need to provide a letter from your dietician or doctor if your child has special dietary requirement for medical reasons.
