SAAG (School Allergy Action Group)
The New School Allergy Action Group Resource Kit
A free seven-step user-friendly toolkit to help you develop a whole school allergy awareness policy for your secondary school
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.
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 email@example.com is there to help with any questions or problems. We also welcome any feedback you may have about the SAAG process.
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

The SAAG programme is a guide to help secondary schools in the UK develop and implement their own allergy management policies. The programme offers general information on the types of factors to consider when developing and implementing the policies, but should be considered, assessed and adapted by you in relation to the specific environment and operation of your own school; it is not intended to be a set of instructions or to comprise advice on what your implementation should look like.
