Allergy Awareness Policy


Our School is a ‘Allergy Aware’ school.  We are committed to providing a safe environment and we aim to protect students who suffer from severe  allergies. 

 

Anaphylaxis is a severe, rapidly progressive allergic reaction that is potentially life threatening. 

 

Our School will strive to educate our Community of the risks associated with anaphylaxis . 

 

Allegy Aware versus Allergy Free

 

It is not possible to eliminate all food with traces of allergenic foods, such as milk products, egg or nut allergens. So, Swan View Primary School knows it is better for our community to become aware of the risks associated with anaphylaxis and to put in place, age appropriate strategies to minimise exposure to known allergies.
