Guidance from Public Health England
NHS correct hand washing technique

In school we have taken the following steps to prevent the passing of germs.

  • The children have been spoken to about correct hand washing procedures.
  • Everybody must wash their hands with soap on arrival at school.
  • Everybody must wash their hands with soap before they eat a snack and before they eat lunch.
  • Everybody must wash their hands with soap after visiting the bathroom.
  • The children have been asked to bring in a water bottle from home, which they take home each day.
  • Disposable cups will be provided for children who do not bring a water bottle in.
  • We have temporarily suspended assemblies so the children are not gathering in large groups.
  • We are staggering lunchtimes so the hall is not full with large groups at once.

Parents will be notified by text message with updates.  Updates will also be on the school website.
