Do you want to:

  • Develop a whole school allergy awareness policy for your school?
  • Reassure governors, parents and pupils that a policy is in place for the safety of pupils with allergy?

The SAAG process involves senior management teams, teachers, caterers, pupils and parents, working together and sharing knowledge and information in order to develop a whole school allergy management policy for their own school.

Secondary schools can download the toolkit and work through the seven steps at their own pace, with a completion certificate after each stage.  It’s hosted by Allergy UK and the team at schools@allergyuk.org is there to help with any questions or problems.  We also welcome any feedback you may have about the SAAG process.

This free toolkit and supporting resources reflect European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) guidance on supporting pupils with allergic conditions in school and EU legislation on food labelling.

Experiencing an incident at school gave us the warning we needed to make some rigorous changes in our approach to allergy management and, just as importantly, in the approach of the whole school community towards allergy management – SAAG Case Study
