Do I need to apply for a special diet menu?


We offer a daily vegetarian meal option. There is no need for you to apply for a special diet menu using this application system.

Nut allergies

We do not include peanut or tree nut as an ingredient or use products that carry "may contain peanut or tree nut traces" labelling, therefore no special dietary application is required for nut only allergies.


Our main website shows the carbohydrate count for each of our meals. You can find your menu by using the school menu search on our main website. There is no need to apply for a special diet menu.
