Nut Free School   

Some children in our school can have a severe allergic reaction to peanuts/nuts. This allergic reaction (anaphylactic shock) can occur through ingestion of peanut/nut products, cross contamination and breathing peanuts in the air. Since this condition can be life threatening, we are asking for your help in minimising the risk to this child by:

Avoiding giving children peanuts in school lunches

Avoiding giving peanut butter sandwiches, other spreads containing nuts such as Nutella and snacks/bars containing nuts or labelled “may contain nut traces” in school lunches

Asking children not to share their lunches.

Head Boy: "Woodbank is it's own community which goes out of its way to make sure everyone is involved and feels part of the school. Our school has many activities to participate in so that children can be more active. The lessons are always interesting and the teachers also help you to reach your goals." 

Head Girl: "Our school has great pupils and teachers and the atmosphere is amazing. I am very honoured to be Head Girl and hope to be able to help our school climb even higher on the hill of success. Since nursery, the school has helped me learn in fun ways from school trips to all the different learning games and the pupils in this school are always respectful to those around them. These points are just some of the reasons that make our school amazing"
