Special Dietary Requirements & Zest Allergens Policy 

New legislation comes into force on October 1st, 2021. 
 
We will require EVERY pupil (with an allergen, intolerance, or special dietary requirement) who will eat food at school whether at breakfast, mid-morning break, or lunch to complete a special diets form.  This must then be emailed to zest@futuralearning.co.uk where we will risk assess the individual requirements. If the risk is deemed safe for us to produce the special diet in the main school kitchen, we will produce a menu to cater for their needs. 
 
 
We are required by law to request this information to be able to cater for special diets in a safe way and this can only be assessed by using an approved risk assessment tool.  
 
This is to ensure we can provide food safely to those who have allergens or intolerance and comply with the new regulations.

Free school meals 

If you think that your child is eligible for free school meals, we can apply to Bristol City Council on your behalf. Please complete the form below and return to office@cheddargroveschool.org.uk

School closure due to adverse weather conditions

If our school has to close due to bad weather all parents will be notified via text message as soon as the decision has been made that the site is not safe for children. However, we will ALWAYS try and keep the school open wherever possible. All of Bristol's school closures can be found on the Bristol City Council's school closure website.

Any news will be communicated by text message. If you do not recieve a text, please assume we are open as normal. This website will be updated every 5 minutes with live, rolling information. Please DO NOT phone the school to see if we are open. This blocks the line for a considerable amount of time.  Instead, please check your phone for a text message, as well as checking the Bristol school's closure website.  Announcements will also be made by local radio stations.
