Thank you for taking the time to visit Anaphylaxis UK’s stand at the Allergy & Free From Show 2024.

We’re so pleased you took the time to stop by, and we hope you walked away from the show feeling positive and confident about managing serious allergies. We’re delighted to share some of our evidence-based information, trusted resources, and useful links to our website for you to refer back to and share with your education setting.

Safer Schools Programme

Did you know in an average classroom, two children have a food allergy? And 20% of food allergy reactions happen at school?

Our Safer Schools Programme is supporting many hundreds of schools to help them with training, awareness raising, and supporting their policies to make sure every child is given the opportunity to safely take part in school activities.

Please let your school know about how we can support them with a whole-school allergy management approach.

Best practice resources

Schools have a legal duty to make arrangements for supporting children with medical conditions, including allergies. Please make yourself aware of the guidance and best practice resources available on our website.

These carefully designed resources – including model policies, allergy action plans, risk assessments, template letters, and webinars – are there for you and your education setting to safely support the pupils with allergies in their care.

AllergyWise®️ for Schools

Our new and improved AllergyWise® for Schools course will help settings understand the common causes of an allergic reaction, how to recognise and manage anaphylaxis, how to use adrenaline auto-injectors, and provides practical tips for safely managing pupils with allergies and lesson packs to involve pupils.

It has been designed with headteachers, teachers, teaching assistants, lunchtime supervisors and/or member of administration staff in mind. A must-resource to share and encourage your school to participate in!

Plus, completing the training is one of the criteria for our AllergyWise® School Award!

Transitioning to Secondary School

For those with Year 6 pupils leaving primary school at the end of the summer term, you may find our “Transitioning to Secondary School” resources a useful read.

Make a cuppa and scroll through our guide created to support parents and carers of children with allergies who are approaching secondary school age.

Early Years and Out-of-School Settings

Please remember we are here for all education settings. For early years settings – including nurseries, pre-schools, and childminders – we offer evidence-based information, trusted resources, and a tailored AllergyWise® training course.

We also have a comprehensive AllergyWise® for Out-of-School Settings for organisations who provide out-of-school activities for children to ensure staff and volunteers are allergy aware and have the confidence to safely manage children with allergies.
