Why do we need anaphylaxis rescue kits in schools?


Anaphylaxis is a severe life-threatening allergic reaction that must be treated immediately, the most common causes of an anaphylactic reaction are Certain foods, (e.g. nuts, shellfish..) insect stings or drugs. Anaphylaxis is rapid in onset and left untreated may result in death.


Since October 2017 the Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations 2017 have allowed schools to buy adrenaline auto-injector devices, without a prescription, for use in emergencies.


ARK was designed for schools to store and make easily accessible an adrenaline auto-injector device to be used in the event of a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Keeping an Anaphylaxis Rescue Kit could potentially save the life of a pupil and may provide parents with a greater peace of mind about sending their allergic child to school.

How do schools obtain Adrenaline auto-injector kits (AAI’s)? 

Children at risk of anaphylaxis are prescribed adrenaline auto-injector (AAI) devices by their doctor, and should bring these to school. 

Schools can also purchase AAIs from a pharmaceutical supplier, such as Crest Medical, without a prescription. This is subject to the following general advice regarding these transactions being observed.

  • A request, signed by the principal or head teacher (ideally on headed paper), is provided which states

    • The name of the school for which the kit is required 

    • The purpose for which the product is required 

    • The total quantity required 

A template letter which can be used for this purpose can be downloaded here

  • Only a small number can be purchased on a occasional basis and the school can not intend to profit from the purchase. 

A number of different brands of AAI are available in different doses depending on the manufacturer. Ark kits contain the Jext AAI device (in either 150 or 300 microgram dose). Schools are advised to hold an appropriate quantity of a single brand of AAI devices to avoid confusion in administration and training.

AAI’s are available in different doses. The Resuscitation Council (UK) recommend that healthcare professionals treat anaphylaxis using the age based criteria, as follows.

  • For children age under 6 years a dose of 150 microgram (0.15milligram) of adrenaline is used (eg Jext 150 microgram device) – Following a risk assessment an Ark Junior Anaphylaxis Rescue Kit should be chosen  

  • For children  age 6 – 12 years: a dose of 300 microgram (0.3 milligram) of adrenaline is used (Jext 300 microgram device) – Following a risk assessment an Ark Senior Anaphylaxis Rescue Kit should be chosen
