Will children and staff be wearing PPE?

Government guidelines say that staff and children in schools do not need to wear PPE. We will ensure that handwashing and good hygiene practice is in place. During the day surfaces will be wiped down. At the end of each day a thorough clean will take place.

Staff will only wear PPE for first aid and intimate care needs in line with current practice or if a child becomes unwell with symptoms of coronavirus while at school and needs direct personal care until they can return home.

We have supplies of PPE for first aiders and any staff coming into close contact with pupils.
