School Allergy Action Group

Joe Harvey, previous director of the Health Education Trust, wrote the first Managing Medicines in Schools guidance in 1999. Since then, the Department for Education (DfE) has updated the guidance with new additional regulations. The latest guidance by DfE, Supporting pupils at school with medical conditions, puts a duty on schools to provide appropriate support for pupils to be able to attend the school with any medical condition.

Health Education Trust worked with partners to develop a seven step user-friendly toolkit to help secondary school staff to develop a whole school allergy awareness policy through the use of School Allergy Action Groups (SAAG). All resources are free to download from Allergy UK website.
