Anaphylaxis is an extreme and severe allergic reaction, where the whole body is affected, often within minutes of exposure to the substance which causes the allergic reaction but sometimes not until a few hours later.
Around one third of the UK population will develop an allergy at some time in their lives. A significant proportion of these will suffer severe symptoms. It is therefore a major concern in schools.
This course is designed to equip staff with a basic understanding of the condition, along with advice to assist them with recognizing symptoms and dealing with an emergency situation.
It will assist the school as a whole by increasing staff confidence to enable them to support/manage children and young people who are likely to suffer an anaphylactic reaction, therefore providing them with a greater opportunity to access education to ensure they reach their full academic potential.
