Thomas’s schools operate a “No Nut” policy. We have several children with very severe nut allergies so it is absolutely imperative that parents do not send in after-school snacks or birthday cakes that may contain any trace of nuts as they pose a real danger to some children.
Unfortunately it is now common practice for food companies to cover themselves legally and state on the food item “may contain traces of nuts” even if the product doesn’t. If your child is to bring in a birthday cake then please be aware that marzipan contains almonds and always check the labelling when providing a cake for cake sale.
If your child has a food allergy or a specific dietary requirement it is important to make the school aware.
