One of the children joining our reception class has a worrying history of time in intensive care related to her allergies and carries life-saving medication with her every single day. Contact with ingredients she is allergic to will result in critical medical attention. We have been working with the family so that we do everything we can to reduce the risk of a severe allergic reaction occurring on school premises.
This child is severely allergic to nuts, sesame seeds and kiwi fruit.
We need your help to protect this child so that we minimise the risk of allergens coming into the school.
The following items are NOT to be brought into school:
This list is by no means extensive but it gives a good idea of the sorts of items to avoid.
Below is a message from the child’s parents with some hints and tips on how you can further support them and make sure that this child is safe. This could act as a quick checklist for you to make sure we have the best chance of minimising risk amongst the children.
Things you can do to help us at school:
As parents of a child with severe life-threatening allergies it can be incredibly hard to not live in a constant state of fear. We are beyond grateful for anything you can do to help keep our daughter safe in school.
If you have any questions or just would like to learn more then please get in touch with the school and we’ll be happy to help.
PLEASE SEE BELOW THE GOOGLE FORM WHICH EACH PARENT/ CARER NEEDS TO SIGN SO THAT WE KNOW EVERYONE HAS RECEIVED THIS INFORMATION, READ AND UNDERSTOOD IT.
Thank you for your support
