Request a special diet for a pupil

Packed lunches should be provided until told the request has been approved and the school cook has advance notice of the pupil's meal selections.

Approval should take between 5 and 10 working days but for more complex cases this can take longer.

Applications made online can be actioned quicker as the information gathered this way is more comprehensive. Paper applications can lead to miscommunication within schools.
