Whole-School Allergy Awareness & Management
How effective is your school allergy 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.

How prepared is your school?
This self-audit is designed to help you reflect and review some of the important aspects of managing food allergies in school. Answer each multiple choice question and once you have completed the questions, you will be able to review your responses together with relevant information about best practice and print the results if you wish.
We hope you will find this a helpful way to start to reflect on your school’s policy and practice. The results will be totally anonymous, so please do contact us if you would like any further details or have specific questions.
Please be advised this self-audit is currently only available to Secondary Schools at this time.
If you are a primary school and wish to receive advice on how to manage food allergies in your school, then please call 01322 619898
