Ryvers is a NUT FREE School

Please place your lunch orders online through your ParentPay Account

Lunch Menu and Allergens - Autumn/Spring - Monday 11th December 2023 - Friday 5th January 2024

No NUTS in Packed Lunches


Please remember that children should not have nuts or items containing nuts in their packed lunches. We have several children in our school who have severe nut allergies and just being in the same room as someone eating nuts can trigger a dangerous, life threatening allergic reaction.


Our catering manager ensures that there are no nuts in any of the food that is prepared and cooked on site.
