Transition to school and high school

Mother and child

The 2023 school year will be here before you know it. If your child is starting school for the first time in 2023, watching our ‘Transition to school’ video can help you prepare for an easy transition from childcare or preschool to big school.

If your child is starting high school, our ‘Transition to high school’ online Q&A will help to answer important questions you may have about managing this important change.

It can be hard to know what is reasonable to ask of a school that is managing your child who is at risk of anaphylaxis, and what is an over-the-top request. The Best practice guidelines for anaphylaxis prevention and management in schools is a great place to start. The guidelines have easy-to-understand information on what is reasonable to expect a school to do around managing your child’s anaphylaxis risk.

There are lots of great resources on the Allergy Aware website for parents of children with severe allergies. The website has helpful resources, including webinars about managing food allergy in primary and high school, and children’s education and care services.
