Make Our Schools Nut Free sign now

We request that the UK Government put into schools a nationwide, mandatory "No Nut" policy.



Nut allergy can kill - and fast. A sufferer can go into anaphylactic shock and die within minutes, even with medical intervention. It is an established fact that most victims go into shock through products consumed outside of the home. Naturally children are at greater risk through accident and ignorance on their behalf or that of others, yet despite this there is no central policy preventing nuts from being brought into or consumed in state schools. The decision is left to individual schools.



As a result the lives of children who suffer from severe nut allergies are being put at risk. Children in our Local Education Authorities are being refused places at the few schools which offer enforced no nut policies and instead told that they are equally safe in those which have no such across the school restrictions. Effectively parents of sufferers are being denied the chance to have their children educated in a reasonably safe environment, leaving some with no option but to home educate or move house, which is often financially and practically impossible. They are told their children may not have school meals and thus putting a financial burden on low-income families and discriminating against the child because of their life-threatening condition.



We call upon the Government to implement a no nut policy in all state schools to both save children from dying and to give their parents real freedom of choice in educating their sons and daughters.
