Special diets at school

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

If your child is affected and attends a primary school, please complete the special dietary requirements - admission form D (pdf 143KB) and send it to the school. You can also request a paper copy of the form 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 primary school menus via our Primary School Menu Allergen and Nutritional Information portal.

Please note this system is only partially complaint with web accessibility regulations. We are working with our supplier to make it fully accessible by September 2021. In the meantime if you require dietary information in an alternative format please email medicallyprescribeddietarysupport@aberdeenshire.gov.uk.


We are committed to providing the best service possible and invite comments and suggestions. You can email us at medicallyprescribeddietarysupport@aberdeenshire.gov.uk.
