School in September 2020

Cleaning and hygiene

The following procedures have been put into place for all children and adults.

  • Frequently wash their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds and dry thoroughly. This is completed every time anybody comes into the building and before and after eating.
  • Clean their hands on arrival at the setting, before and after eating, and after sneezing or coughing.
  • All children and adults are encouraged not to touch their mouth, eyes and nose.
  • Use a tissue or elbow to cough or sneeze and use bins for tissue waste (‘catch it, bin it, kill it’).
  • Ensure that help is available for children and young people who have trouble cleaning their hands independently.
  • Consider how to encourage young children to learn and practise these habits through games, songs and repetition, this will also be a part of PHSRE lessons. All staff will insist that all children are washing hands.
  •  Ensure that bins for tissues are emptied throughout the day.
  • Cleaning rotas are maintained through out the day and all touch points are frequently cleaned.
  • All rooms/classrooms should be well ventilated using natural ventilation (opening windows) or ventilation units.
  • All doors are open, where safe to do so (bearing in mind fire safety and safeguarding), to limit use of door handles and aid ventilation.
  • All cleaning equipment is audited so that school has enough  to use.
  • PPE is provided for use.
