 A Parent’s Guide to New Allergen Rules and Requirements

Natasha’s Law is a new legislation relating to the declaration of allergen information on pre-packed for direct sale (PPDS) food. The law takes its name from the tragic death of a teenager named Natasha, who died from an allergic reaction to undeclared sesame seeds in a pre-packaged baguette.

The new law makes it a legal requirement to clearly display information about potential allergens on food packaging for PPDS food.

Packed Lunches

As part of the ‘Healthy Eating in Schools’ initiative, if your child stays for a packed lunch, we ask you not to send fizzy drinks or sweets in his/her lunchbox.  Your child can be provided with water with their lunch along with children staying for a hot school meal. Please also see our Packed Lunch Policy by clicking here.


School meals cost £2.30 per day (£11.50 per week) and should be paid in advance, on Monday mornings.  Payments can also be made in advance on a monthly or half-termly basis and are made via ParentPay.
