Nut free school

At Charnwood Primary School we strive to provide a safe learning environment for all students. Due to some of our pupils suffering with nut allergies which are life threatening, we are a NUT FREE SCHOOL.

Since this condition can be life threatening, we are asking all members of the school community for their help in minimising the risk of these children. It is important that all parents implement the suggested measures in order to reduce the risk of allergic reaction to these children:

  1. Not giving children nuts or nut products in their packed lunch
  2. Not giving nuts or nut products or snacks/bars containing nuts for break time snacks.
  3. Not supplying the school cakes or food items containing nuts for birthdays celebrations, sales or events

We understand that you may want to send in a treat for your child to share when it is their birthday. If you would like to do this we would recommend sending items such as a book for the class to share, enjoy and keep. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we are currently unable to hand out food items or gifts to children.

We thank you in advance for your co-operation and support.


Packed Lunches

We have joined up with Veg Power to promote the consumption of vegetables in schools.

As part of Veg Power's on-going mission to encourage the UK to eat more veg, they would like to make it easier for parents and carers to add more veg to children's lunchboxes. Recent research from Leeds University found that only one in five children had any vegetables or salad in their packed lunch.

To support parents, Veg Power has developed a ’60 Second Lunchbox Hacks’. Please see below.
