The importance of hygiene in schools

The priority in the education sector is to provide the best quality of learning and development, whilst keeping students and staff safe and healthy.

Keeping healthy and avoiding illnesses is a big challenge in a context where interactions are encouraged through learning and play.

Hygiene levels are also difficult to maintain within high footfall environments which peak during the day. The provision of adequate facilities in schools is a basic requirement and supports the prevention and spread of infection.

Hygiene is important for parents too, with the quality of hygiene care in schools being one of the key criteria which influences prospective parents.

Schools, teachers and education curriculums have a key role to play in teaching children and young adults about hygiene and are a guiding influence where good behaviour and practice is concerned. As role models, teachers can help build strong foundations and instil good hygiene habits that will last a lifetime.

"School is such an important environment for our children as it's the place that much of our learnt behaviour takes root. In an ideal world, parents will take the lead on teaching children about the importance of hygiene, however where this isn't possible, schools can ensure that such practice life skills are learnt and reinforced."

- Emma Kenny, Media Psychologist and Registered Psychological Therapist
