  • consent to administer the emergency AAI
  • considerations for learners with allergies
  • maintaining an up to date register of pupils at risk of anaphylaxis
  • responding to allergy and anaphylaxis symptoms
  • storage, care and disposal of the emergency AAI
  • suggested information for schools to share with parents/carers.
