Building a whole school approach and what this means in practice

Building allergy awareness throughout your school is really important to embed best practice, develop robust policies and to keep pupils safer. But what does whole-school awareness really mean, what does it look like and how is it achieved?

This topic was explored in depth, during our presentation and Q&A with James Gardner, Consultant Nurse in Paediatric Allergy and co-founder of The Allergy Team, Sarah Knight.

Why food allergy matters: supporting your school

The Allergy Team was delighted to deliver this webinar in partnership with Towergate Insurance and The Education Broker.

Allergy is the most common chronic condition in childhood and in school-aged children 20% of allergic reactions happen at school. Managing pupils’ allergies can be challenging: from risk reduction and managing inclusion, to making sure you are fully prepared if you face a serious allergic reaction.

Aimed at senior leaders, this presentation and Q&A gave an overview of what allergy management best practice looks like in schools looks like and how to keep pupils safe.

Our panellist were Sarah Knight, co-founder of The Allergy Team and Professor Adam Fox, Paediatric Consultant in Allergy.
