Examples of letters

In a letter to parents, Westwood Community Primary School explains that nut allergies can lead to potentially life-threatening allergic reactions and includes a list of restricted foods.

Spinney Hill Primary School in Leicester has a page about its 'nut free' policy in the 'Key information' section of its website. As many children and parents in this community speak languages other than English, it provides a list of nuts that includes names in other languages.
