Food Allergies

If you think you or your child may have a food allergy, it's very important to ask for a professional diagnosis from your GP. They can then refer you to an allergy clinic.

Many parents mistakenly assume their child has a food allergy when their symptoms are actually caused by a completely different condition.

Food Allergen Information

Food allergen information 4.6.15

Allergies V Intolerances

It is important to understand the difference between food allergies and food intolerances. Food allergies are actual immunoglobin E (IgE) antibody responses to counteract an actual food allergy. Symptoms of food allergies can include itchiness, hives, swelling, trouble breathing, abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting or gagging. Some reactions to food allergies can be more severe or life-threatening. Food intolerances do not elicit IgE mediated responses, although the symptoms of intolerances may be similar to that of allergic reactions. In addition, things such as abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea also mimic symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, which makes identifying food intolerances that much more frustrating. If you suspect your body is having a reaction to a certain food, it is recommended you visit an allergist or registered dietitian where you can receive more objective information as compared to something like a food sensitivity test

Catering Services


School lunches are prepared on school premises by our dedicated team lead by Elizabeth. Our menus are on a three weekly cycle and are revised every six months after the Autumn half term break and the start of the Summer term.  Our menus will always meet or exceed the Government's new food based guidelines launched a the beginning of 2015 and we work closely with our Community Dietitian to ensure this is so.

If your child has any special dietary requirements then please obtain a letter to confirm this from your GP and speak to your school - every effort will be made to cater for any such needs.
