If you would prefer your child to have a packed lunch please make sure that it is balanced and healthy.
We do not allow sweets, crisps, chocolate, fizzy drinks or glass bottles. Please ensure that food containing nuts is not brought in to school in order to protect children with serious nut allergies.
Children are encouraged to bring water in plastic bottles to be drunk during the day.
If you wish to change meal pattern, please contact the School Administration Team. If you do not let us know of any intended changes, you may still be charged for a school meal.
What to include in your child's packed lunch:
PLEASE DO NOT PUT DRINKS IN GLASS BOTTLES.
Sunnyhill is a ‘nut free’ school. People who suffer from nut allergies can develop a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. If someone has a nut allergy it is not just eating nuts that can cause a severe reaction, just being touched on the skin or smelling the breath of someone who has had nuts or a product containing nuts can trigger anaphylactic shock (which can cause breathing and swallowing difficulties).
We cannot have nuts in school in any form. So please can we ask that you have no nut products in your child’s packed lunch boxes or brought into the school as treats or snacks for after school activities. If you wish to bring in a cake/cakes for your child’s birthday, we will only accept cakes that have been made in a nut free environment, this needs to be clearly labelled on the product. If your child has consumed a product containing nuts before coming to school (ie: granola for breakfast), please ensure that they wash/sanitise their hands before arriving at school. Please do not be offended if a member of staff informs you that your cake must be collected from the school office – it is due to ensuring the safety of pupils with severe allergies at our school.
If your child suffers from any food allergies and requires special dietary please complete the Dietary Referral Form available from the school office or within the Forms section on this website and return to the school office with supporting medical evidence.
