Schools: Children with Allergies / Anaphylaxis Training Course Contents
In this section we explain what an allergy is and how it’s caused. We discuss how an allergic reaction works and the signs to look out for. We also explain what an allergen is, including the most common allergens for children.
2. Allergy Management
Here we discuss allergy management, histamine and antihistamine, as well as the importance of avoiding allergens and having an Individual Healthcare Plan. We also explain how to treat mild and moderate allergic reactions.
This section comprehensively covers anaphylaxis and anaphylactic shock. We describe what it is, how to recognise it, and how to treat a child who has an anaphylactic episode. We explain the importance of adrenaline auto-injectors, how to administer them, and when. This section also contains an extensive emergency procedure, including the recovery position and CPR.
4. School Policies and Responsibilities
In this section we discuss school policy and how to look after, store and carry medication. We also highlight staff responsibilities in the classroom, when cooking, at lunchtime, on school trips, and during exams and sports lessons.
5. The Impact of Allergies on Children
Allergies can disrupt a child’s education and have a negative impact on their well-being if they’re not adequately supported and cared for. In this section, we discuss emotional health, and raising allergy awareness amongst pupils and staff. We also include the responsibilities of the child themselves, as well as their parents or guardians.
