My child can react to tiny amounts of food: how does this impact on their taking part in lessons than involve cooking/preparing food?

Under legislation, the school has a duty of care to safeguard children with special medical needs, including those with food allergies. Any food-allergic child should have an individualised healthcare plan agreed between the parent/guardian and school, which might include measures for managing specific classroom scenarios.

Schools are obligated to safeguard children, so any special measures need to be appropriate and proportionate, otherwise the school might seek to exclude children from certain activities in order to keep that child safe.
