Hope School: a nut free zone.
Please help us to keep the school a nut free zone, as we have a number of people who have severe allergies to nuts and sesame seeds. Please do not send you child to school with peanut butter or Nutella sandwiches. When families provide confectionery or cakes to celebrate birthdays, please make sure you do not send in sweets or chocolates or cakes with nuts in.
To help children with food allergies and for families to know what their child has eaten, we ask children not to share their packed lunches.
