Soundbites of experts discussing the many key issues schools must consider when developing an effective allergy management policy.

The European Academy of Allergy & Clinical Immunology (EAACI) guidelines for schools emphasise development of age-specific, whole school, allergy-aware management policies- simply banning food allergens is not a risk-free solution.

Implementing policy effectively, requires:

  • whole-school awareness
  • practical action management

Through this multiagency project, we are working with schools to transform these authoritative recommendations into a user friendly format that schools can instantly access and utilise.
