Special Diet Requests


In Torfaen all requests for special diets in primary schools are processed by the Schools Catering Dietitian rather than the school or the cook on site. Full information is on the Torfaen Council Website.


For medically prescribed special diets (allergies, gluten free, carb counting etc), parents should complete the form available on the website, along with GP signature, recent hospital letter, or parents can opt in to give our dietitian express permission to speak with the pupil’s health professional directly to confirm.


For menus for ethical/religious reasons such as vegetarian or pork free, a one line email from the parents to will suffice.

Above is a letter from Torfaen about their online system for payment for meals, school trips, activities and school events.

If you have any questions about the new system you can contact the Cashless Catering Team via email ( or by emailing the school office (
