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.

In section 5 of our children with anaphylaxis and allergies training for schools, we look at the negative impact that allergies can have on children and their education.

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.

About this course

Children with allergies MUST avoid their allergens continuously. It’s the only way to guarantee their safety and well-being. 

This Anaphylaxis and Allergy Training Course has been written for people who care for children with allergies. It explains how allergies are triggered, what to look out for with allergic reactions, and how to monitor and treat children with allergies.

It covers allergens, preventative measures, what to do in emergencies and cases of anaphylaxis, and it discusses both the practical and emotional support a child may need on a daily basis.

It's estimated that 50% of children in the UK now have an allergic condition of some sort and whilst some can be much less dangerous than others, all must be taken seriously, especially in schools. Between 6 and 8% of children in the UK also have a proven food allergy, meaning the chances of these children having an anaphylactic shock is very high. Due to the high number of children now having allergic conditions, allergy and anaphylactic shock training are becoming essential for those working in childcare. 

Our other courses tailored to those working in schools or childcare include Children with Diabetes, Children with Epilepsy and Children with Asthma
