Boy with nut allergy is banned from school

A pupil at Howden School in East Yorkshire has been banned from school as he has a nut allergy. The headteacher was concerned that none of his staff was trained to cope if the 11-year-old had an allergic reaction, so he banned the pupil on grounds of health and safety.

Head Andrew Williams said staff were working towards an acceptable solution. "My main concern is to ensure that we meet the healthy and welfare needs of all students in our care."
