Emergency School Junior 150mcg Anaphylaxis Rescue Kit

Quick Overview

For Schools ………


Why do we need Adrenaline auto-injector kits?


Anaphylaxis is a severe and often sudden allergic reaction. It can occur when someone with allergies is exposed to something that they are allergic to (known as an allergen). Reactions usually begin within minutes and progress rapidly, but can occur up to 2-3 hours later.


Up to 8% of children in the UK have a food allergy. However, the majority of allergic reactions to food are not anaphylaxis, even in children with previous anaphylaxis. Fatal allergic reactions are rare. In the UK, 17% of fatal allergic reactions in school-aged children happen while at school. More information can be accessed here.


It is potentially life-threatening, and always requires an immediate emergency response

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

  • For teenagers age 12+ years a dose of 300 microgram can be used (Jext 300 microgram device) – Following a risk assessment an Ark Senior Anaphylaxis Rescue Kit should be chosen  

Ark emergency anaphylaxis kits 

It is advised that Schools with spare AAis should store these as part of an emergency anaphylaxis kit, ARK Anaphylaxis Kit, which includes 

  • 2 x Adrenaline Auto- Injector (AAIs)

  • 1 x Salbutomol Inhaler 

  • 1 x Spacer (Spacers are large, empty devices (or tubes) that are usually made out of plastic. They help you get the best from your inhaler)

  • Instructions on how to use and store the devices.

  • A checklist of injectors, identifying batch numbers and expiry dates.

  • Kit inspection log 

  • Pupils at risk log
