Special diets at school

Your child's school should be advised of any food allergies or medically prescribed dietary support during the school induction process (nurseries, primary schools and academies) or when a condition is identified.

If your child is affected and attends a nursery, primary or academy, please complete the online form to let us know about their dietary requirements, and request special or modified diet.

Request special or modified diet

If you can't complete the online form you can request a paper copy from the school office.

Parents and carers of pupils with medically prescribed dietary needs can view allergens contained in any food item on the current nursery and primary school menus via our School Menu Allergen and Nutritional Information portal.


We are committed to providing the best service possible and invite comments and suggestions. You can email us at
