At primary schools I think it's fair for severe allergies.
Children should still be responsible, taught not to share food, wash their hands after everything and to carry an epi pen but at that age accidents happen. Kids are all playing, have grubby hands and very little idea of personal space.
All it takes is being partnered up with a kid who had peanut butter at lunch for something to smear across and anaphylaxis is sudden. Why risk it? Should one kids right to peanut butter in a 6 hour window override another kids right to life?
High school is different, they're more conscious of how cross contamination can occur and can choose to be in other areas if they know someone in particular brings things they're allergic to so I think more leeway would be appropriate
