Nut Allergy Policy

Due to the large number of children in the school with potentially life threating allergies, the school is a nut free zone.  This includes all nut products such as Nutella and muesli bars.

Students are discouraged from sharing food due to potential contamination. Any nut products found in school will be removed from the student. It is the sole responsibility of the parent / guardian to inform the school of any allergies and medical requirements.

Parents who report an allergen to nuts, stings or any other product are required to have their children fully assessed by a specialist. If deemed necessary by a physician, children are required to supply the school with an Epipen.

Staff will be instructed on the appropriate response to allergic reactions as well as any medical/health issues that are pertinent to the students.
