Schools allergy Action group (SAAG)
Developing effective school allergy policy can be daunting and needs continuous reappraisal. Setting up a SAAG in your school will help to establish an effective structure for whole school policy development and monitoring.
Put simply, a SAAG is about getting the right mix of people around the table, who together can assess, manage and monitor risks around allergy to ensure the safety of pupils with allergies in a whole-school environment.
The Health Education Trust are well known for their expertise in helping schools establish similar working groups as part of the successful Soil Association Food for Life project and their expertise is now being called on to help us establish effective whole school allergy policies.
