Birthday Cakes in School

4th February 2020

BIRTHDAY CAKES, TREATS AND PARTY BAGS

Please note that staff will no longer be able to give out birthday cakes, treats or party bags.

Not only do we have an increasing number of children with a range of severe allergies, we also wish to avoid the time taken by staff to manage the sharing of food (e.g. checking ingredients to accommodate allergies, and cutting and wrapping cakes), so that school time is used productively for learning.  This is also an important aspect of upholding our healthy school status.

We therefore ask that parents and carers do not to send in birthday cakes or other foods to be handed out by school staff.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
