ISBA Annual Conference
The Allergy Team is delighted to be exhibiting at the ISBA Annual Conference in Manchester, 23-25th May 2023.
Please come to say hello at Stand 73 or book a meeting with us.
Why is The Allergy Team at ISBA?
Allergic disease is the most common chronic medical condition in childhood and 20% of allergic reactions happen in school, most of them outside the dining hall.
We work with schools to reduce the risk of allergic reactions happening and to ensure all staff know how to respond if they do.
Our co-founder, Sarah Knight, explained more during her recent appearance on the ISBA podcast.

“There is a clear need for a change in culture around how food allergies are managed in schools. The UK lags behind other countries and children are suffering and even dying as a result. By really educating the whole school community about food allergy we can turn things around.”
Professor Adam Fox, Consultant Paediatrician in Allergy

Why The Allergy Team?
The Allergy Team has a track record of transforming food allergy management in schools.
Since September 2022 we have supported over 450 schools, including Oundle, Badminton, Notting Hill Prep and Fettes College. We have also trained thousands of staff employed by school caterer Sodexo and are delivering ongoing work for Greggs.
“This training should be part of any school’s safeguarding and continued development.”
“I thought the training was brilliant and I’ve certainly left feeling informed, inspired and confident with managing food allergies in school.”
“The level of detail, examples and experiences shared is outstanding. It really makes you think about current procedures but makes you feel it is all achievable as well… it should be compulsory for all staff!”
