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.
