We contacted 26,000 UK schools to let them know about the Anaphylaxis Campaign’s ‘Making Schools Safer Project’. We have had a fantastic response to the recent campaign, where UK schools received a direct link to our free online e-learning course AllergyWise anaphylaxis online training for Schools.
Our free online e-learning course AllergyWise for Schools is designed to ensure that all staff:
- Understand how to safeguard children with allergies
- Are fully aware of the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis
- Know how to provide emergency treatment
Take the Kit
As part of the campaign we have shared our Take the Kit video. The video highlights the importance for students to carry their medication with them at all times. The social stigmatisation of carrying an Adrenaline Auto Injector and the extreme pressures on teenagers to ‘fit-in’ and seem ‘normal’ can lead to students not carrying their medication with them at all times. This is a risky and potentially life-threatening action. We hope that teachers will share this video in their lessons with all the students to raise awareness of anaphylaxis.
#TakeTheKit Watch. Share. Raise Awareness.
School Allergy Awareness Resources Pack
We provided Primary Schools with a School Allergy Awareness Resources Pack which will allow them to facilitate an allergy awareness session with the whole school. This includes materials such as a lesson plan, presentation and worksheets.
