Birthday Treats – new guidance

Dear Parents,

We know that a birthday is an exciting time for a child and that they enjoy sharing the occasion with their friends. As we have an increasing number of children and adults in school with severe allergies or who are not allowed to eat certain ingredients that appear in most products, we are asking you not to send your child to school with cakes, chocolates or sweets to hand out for their birthday. Instead we will celebrate with your child in class.

We hope that you will understand that if your child does bring treats into school, then we will send them home at the end of the day with your child.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Penman
