Showing symptoms of a respiratory infection

What are we doing in school?

  • We are following government advice to maintain enhanced hygiene, appropriate cleaning and good ventilation.
  • Children and staff will wash hands and/or use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day. Lidded bins and tissues are provided throughout school.
  • We are participating in a Department for Health and Social Care sponsored study to monitor air quality. This involves the installation of HEPA filtration systems in each classroom and the staffroom.
  • CO2 monitors are installed in each classroom.
  • We have robust contingency plans in place should we need to re-introduce any new measures in line with changes in government or public health advice.
