Hygiene and staying healthy at school

Your child’s school will have strict guidance in place to minimise the risk of transmission.

The following are just some of the ways that should help your child stay safe to school.

  • Handwashing – wash hands regularly throughout the day and wash your child’s hands thoroughly when they return from school
  • Frequent and thorough deep cleaning of surfaces
  • Wash your child’s school clothes regularly
  • Remind your child of social distancing rules

Be aware of coronavirus symptoms - If your child has a temperature, develops a new, continuous cough or loses their sense of smell or taste, do not send them to school.
