Keeping pupils with food allergy safe requires effort from your whole school community, so it’s important everyone understands how serious they can be. 

We have created a factsheet for schools to download and send out to all parents and carers. It explains what a food allergy is and outlines practical steps they can take to support pupils with allergies.

There is also a template covering letter to accompany the factsheet (primary and secondary versions) written by The Key.
