Last updated 4:19 PM on 11 December 2012

The safety and wellbeing of your child is of paramount importance to us, including where your child is diagnosed at risk of a severe allergic reaction..  It is important that parents notify the school if their child has an allergy.

Anaphylaxis is a severe and sometimes sudden allergic reaction that is potentially life-threatening and always requires an emergency response. As with other serious health conditions, schools put in place strategies to support students at risk of anaphylaxis at school or while they are engaged in school related activities.

Additional measures to support students at risk of anaphylaxis have recently been introduced
These measures include updated procedures and information about precautions schools can take to minimise the risk of exposure to allergens and training requirements for staff, regardless of whether or not there is a student with anaphylaxis at school.

For further information:

The Department of Education and Communities develops support material for schools about anaphylaxis on an ongoing basis.
