Special diets and allergens

Special diets

Catering services are receiving an increasing number of requests for special diet provision and information on allergens.

If your child has a special dietary requirement please speak to the school office. We will then contact you to arrange a meeting to discuss your child’s dietary requirements in more detail.

It would be appreciated if you could provide supporting medical evidence relating to your child’s condition such as a letter from your GP.

Blackpool Council’s policy is to provide a menu for those pupils with medically diagnosed food allergies, intolerance or a medical condition which affects eating requirements.


We produce full details for the following list of allergens:

  • Celery
