What should happen when a pupil who is at risk of anaphylaxis goes on a school trip or attends a different school to take part in a sporting activity?

Schools should conduct a risk-assessment for any pupil at risk of anaphylaxis taking part in a trip off school premises, in much the same way as they already do so with regards to safe-guarding etc.

Pupils at risk of anaphylaxis should have their AAI(s) with them, and there should be staff trained to administer AAIs in an emergency.

Schools may wish to consider whether it may be appropriate, under some circumstances, to take spare AAI(s) obtained for emergency use on some trips.
