“It was exceptionally well designed and put-together. The summaries were well conceived and helpful documents were included throughout.  I thought the training was brilliant and I’ve certainly left feeling informed, inspired and confident with managing food allergies in school.”

Michael Speed

Deputy Headteacher, Primary School

“It’s brilliant – so comprehensive! The high number of professionals [you hear from] gives the training great validity. A sense that “we’re all in it together” and by working together can get the best for the child.” 

Karen Cragg

Nurse, Wilmslow High School

What an amazing resource. 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!”
