The number of pupils with asthma and allergies is growing every year and the conditions are closely related. In addition, both conditions are potentially life threatening and unpredictable.
In line with Supporting Pupils with Medical Conditions at School (DfE 2015) it is essential that all schools have a robust management plan in place that ensures a safe and healthy learning environment for pupils with asthma and allergies. Our Asthma & Allergy-Friendly School Programme assists schools in meeting the statutory requirements.
The programme is designed and delivered by a team of specialist nurses who have current clinical practice in school nursing, and a wealth of experience working in partnership with schools.
