Packed Lunches

Children are welcome to bring a packed lunch to school but please note that Hilltop operates a strict ‘no nuts’ policy, including nut products such as peanut butter, as there are both children and staff at the school with severe nut allergies.  Sweets, chocolate and chocolate products and fizzy drinks are also not allowed.
