Children with food allergies can still be safe at school but it takes good communication and planning between parents and school staff.

Our back-to-school page provides parents with useful resources and is a great guide to use to create a healthy learning environment for your child. With our “Back to School Allergy Checklist” you can prepare for a well-managed school year.

1. Get in touch with your child’s school teachers / caregivers.

Talk with them before the start of the new school year and ask to hang allergy awareness posters in the classroom.

2. Check if your child’s PAI is up-to-date.

Does your child not yet have a PAI? Find out more about how to proceed here.

(Save as image our PAI infographic to know more) 

3. Check if the yearly Teacher/Staff allergy training is booked.

Every year your teachers /caregivers should receive allergy training ahead of the start of the school year - contact them before the summer break to ensure that it will take place. Join if possible. 

4. Keep the emergency kit (Trousse d'urgence) up-to-date.

Make sure that your child’s emergency medication kit for school is complete and control the expiry dates of the individual items.

5. Inform the others Parents.

Consider handing out a a letter to other parents explaining your child’s allergies, surely some of them are unaware of allergies.
