Anaphylaxis & Asthma Safe School Programme



Schools have a legal duty to make arrangements for supporting pupils with asthma and allergies, ensuring their physical safety, as well as addressing their emotional and social well-being.

Implementing a structured pathway for all pupils with asthma and allergies provides appropriate support at different stages as they progress through school years. Evidence indicates that empowering children and young people to manage their own medical conditions leads to better outcomes. Schools play a vital role in supporting pupils in this aspect through education programs and one-on-one support.

This Pupil Programme offers comprehensive training on establishing a robust pupil pathway throughout the school years, providing a range of tools and resources to support schools in achieving and implementing these measures.

The training is most relevant for the senior leadership team, SENCO, teachers, and staff involved in pupil admission processes.
