Allergies

At Hollickwood, we cater for allergies and try to make sure we do not put any child at risk. We are a NO-NUT school and have FISH ONLY ON FRIDAY so please make sure there aren’t any nuts in any packed lunches and pack fish in only on Fridays as children allergic to these could be put at a high risk.

Also, if your child has any other allergies, please ensure you make us aware of these by filling the (medical condition form)
